Selby stars Saturday at NBA summer league


— Former Kansas basketball player Josh Selby scored a game-high 20 points on 7-for-11 shooting, leading the Memphis Grizzlies’ summer league team to a 93-77 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Selby was 5-for-7 from three-point range and added a steal and rebound to go with two turnovers in 25 minutes.

In his second summer league game, Thomas Robinson scored 14 points on 3-for-13 shooting with 12 rebounds in the Sacramento Kings’ 84-72 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Robinson made eight of 13 free throws with four assists, three turnovers and one steal in 28 minutes.

Teammate Darnell Jackson posted five points on 2-for-4 shooting with four rebounds, a block and a turnover in 14 minutes in the same contest.

Marcus Morris had an eventful game for Houston, as he received stitches above his right eye after taking a hard foul in the Rockets’ 76-70 loss to the Washington Wizards.

Morris, who didn’t return to the game after suffering the injury in the first half, finished with seven points (3-for-5 shooting), three rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 16 minutes. He also picked up a technical foul after getting in a shoving match with the Wizards’ Chris Singleton.

8 turnovers for TRob...I can only guess he is all amped-up, trying to take his game up a notch, trying to blow the doors off opponents, and his teammates may not be used to see a big who is so quick. So maybe they werent in position for his pass or even on the same page mentally (yet) with TRob. Same exact explanation for some (but not all) of Tyshawn's turnovers (with KU), as Tyshawn simply plays at a speed that takes some getting used to. The chemistry TRob (& Tyshawn) had for years with their KU teammates is now gone. Playing with new faces. Takes time. TRob will adjust also.

Nice to see Darnell Jackson trying to land with the Kings also. He could be a good mentor & friend for TRob, god love them both! Also nice to see Marcus bring the nasty. That is alot of how the NBA game is. Just like learning a "lesson" at the hands of MichState when Marcus was a frosh--> the next season it was the Spartan's Raymar Morgan who suffered a broken nose at the hands of the Twins. And that white bully (Nelson?) for UCLA got a black eye, courtesy of the Twins (same guy who Howland finally kicked off the team last year). Bill Self teams are NOT soft. KU "softie"/pussy fans need to understand that. Self was incessantly hounding the Twins in practice to be "tough". Understand that this comes from Self. Not Danny. Bill Self. Roy Williams' collectively soft teams are gone (although he had individual tough players). Bill Self is a fighter. He keeps creating teams that are an extension of his own personality. From RussRob to Shady to Darnell to Twins to Brady to Tyshawn, TRob, and Elijah...Self keeps finding kids that fit his bill or that he can groom to fit.
