Parry McCluer's Andy Fainter will
pass to Chase Coffey, and Chase will

Galax would counter that move
with Clay Surratt - who shoots, misses,
but gets his own rebound and puts it

This week, Tennessee coach Pat
Summitt, who has led the Vols to six
national titles since 1974, spent an
evening at Northside watching Moats in
the Blue Ridge district tournament.

PAT SUMMITT

Summitt has not offered Moats yet.
The junior will join a west Virginia
based AAU team after the season coached
by the father of a Tennessee player.
Wallace, who suffered a season ending
knee injury last week, plays ninth
months a year.

MOATS

WALLACE

Summitt's roster often has players
from California to Florida to Illinois

to New York and has watched the high
school game evolve in her 30 plus years
as UT's head coach.

Wallace and Moats have played on the
same AAU team together but doubt they
will go to the same college. steve
