'Zags Get Ready for Memphis 

From the Washington Olympian: Steven Gray has been shooting the ball remarkably well for the Gonzaga Bulldogs, and his coach is not very happy about it.

"Fifty-eight percent (shooting) is too high. That means we're not getting him enough shots," Mark Few complained -- is that the correct term? -- as the Bulldogs prepared for a Saturday road stop at top-ranked Memphis (11 a.m., ESPN).

The ever-demanding Few can take solace in the fact that Gray is actually shooting "only" 55 percent from the field, including "just" 52 percent on 3-pointers. The freshman guard out of Bainbridge High is nailing 90 percent of his free throws and averaging 8.8 points since recovering from surgery on his broken right (shooting) hand and missing Gonzaga's first 10 games.

"He's been terrific," Few said. "It's a shame we didn't have him earlier or we probably woundn't have dumped a couple of those games."
