As first reported here, Paterson’s Hashim “Big City” Bailey may be on the move later this summer. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that the 6-foot-10 Bailey will leave Memphis for UMass after completing summer school at Memphis. Former Memphis assistant Derek Kellogg is now the head coach at UMass. Memphis head coach John Calipari told the Appeal that Bailey was staying home during the Tigers’ upcoming trip to China.
**Speaking of Paterson, the “Silk City,” the home of Lou Costello, Larry Doby, Tim Thomas, Nicole Louden and Essence Carson, how about Fordham-bound G Jio Fontan dropping in 41 points in the championship game of the IS8 on Sunday?
