Labissiere was forced to sit out
his senior year after transferring
from Evangelical Christian School
to Lausanne Collegiate, but made
his impact in Memphis.
Adding prime-time scorer Dedric
Lawson (Hamilton) and Kansasbound
Lagerald Vick (Douglass),
Memphis was loaded at the top,
but the class was bolstered by
guys like White Station's Nych
Smith, Melrose's Marlon Hunter
and Mitchell's Jeremiah Martin.
CLASS OF 2014: ENTIRELY
STATIONARY, WITH ONE HAVEN
The White Station Big 3 of 2014
was one of the best college-bound
trios to team up at one Memphis
school in a long time. Headlined
by Leron Black, the Tennessee
Gatorate player of the year, the
Spartans were a 30-3 behemoth.
But it wasn’t just Black, who’d go
on to star at Illinois, but Chris
Chiozza and Davell Roby, as well.
Chiozza wound up an All-SEC firstteam
point guard for the Florida
Gators and Roby was a fixture for
Saint Louis University.
In addition to the Spartans’
standout trio, Whitehaven’s
Marcanvis Hymon averaged
18 points, 13 rebounds and
five blocks as a senior before
committing to Ole Miss.
CLASS OF 2013:
A KING AND FOUR KNIGHTS
The Memphis Tigers benefited
from another home-grown haul
in 2013, led by East’s biggest
star before Wiseman, Nick King.
King ultimately bounced around
from Memphis to Alabama to
Middle Tennessee State, where
he rediscovered his dominance
and became Conference USA
player of the year. The Tigers
also landed Briarcrest Christian’s
Austin Nichols and Melrose star
Markel Crawford, who missed
his senior year due to a torn ACL
but nonetheless played three
years for the Tigers. The class
also included Southwind’s Jajuan
Johnson and Johnathan Williams,
who’d go on to Marquette and
