Memphis, TN-The University of Memphis basketball team got some help on Tuesday to fill the void on a frontline that lost five players. George Washington forward David Pellom announced on Tuesday that he’ll enroll at Memphis this summer. Pellom, who graduates in May, is taking advantage of NCAA rule for early graduates that allows them to play their senior seasons immediately at another school. The athletic 6-8 forward missed all of last season because of wrist surgery, but is expected to make an immediate impact for the Tigers. As a junior, Pellom averaged six rebounds a game and shot 68.5 percent from the field.
