Rudy Gay (Archbishop Spalding) scored 25 points and Mike Conley added 22 Wednesday night to lead the Memphis Grizzlies (20-54) to their first home win since the All-Star break, 112-107 over the Washington Wizards. Caron Butler had 31 points for Washington (17-59), which lost its third straight, while Antawn Jamison had 28 points and 10 rebounds.

But they did have center Brendan Haywood, who played in his first game this season after surgery on his right wrist last October.

To Josh Selby, the Memphis Grizzlies represent a clean slate, and a team that doesn't care about his past, only his potential. To the Memphis Grizzlies — who snagged the Lake Clifton graduate with the 49th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft — Selby represents an investment of minimal risk, but one that still has the potential for a big return. It wasn't a marriage many people saw coming. The Grizzlies never even had Selby in for a workout. "I was very surprised," Selby said. "I didn't have any contact with them [before the draft]

A dream that began years ago in a South American country known for producing more shortstops than jump-shooters and took shape at the University of Maryland the past four seasons became reality Thursday night at New York's Madison Square Garden. Greivis Vasquez silenced his doubters, at least for the time being, after getting chosen by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA draft. Vasquez was the 28th player taken overall. Vasquez, who won the Bob Cousy Award as the nation's top point guard as a senior and finished his career second only to Juan Dixon on Maryland's all-time scoring list, was the first Maryland player taken in the first round since Dixon and Chris Wilcox in 2002.

DID HE WEAR Nike or Adidas on those size-15 feet? It's very important, because one of those companies will win the right to pay LeBron James $20 million to endorse its product. (Just what we need. Another 18-year-old selling $150 sneakers to the world's youth.) Did he help or hurt his chance of being the No. 1 pick in the 2003 NBA draft? It's important, because the entire economy and competitive future of the Memphis Grizzlies (or some other downtrodden NBA franchise) is now riding on this "can't-miss" prospect.

Just before his Under Armour team was about to tip off against St. Frances in an exhibition Monday afternoon, Greivis Vasquez went over to two of the game officials to voice a complaint. "Hey, these guys are wearing Nikes," the former Maryland basketball star teased, pointing to the referees' footwear. "What the [heck]?" With the NBA in its fifth month of a lockout, Vasquez has become something of a shoe salesman. In fact, promoting Under Armour's basketball apparel line was the main reason the second-year member of the Memphis Grizzlies was at St. Frances on Monday, along with Charlotte Bobcats rookie Kemba Walker and third-year Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings.
