— 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.
