SEC-RANKINGS TRADE OFF
UNDATED — The SEC this week can celebrate having the highest number of ranked teams within a single conference at any time since almost precisely two years ago.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Grizzlies know only too well that they won’t outshoot or race up and down the court with the likes of Golden State and Houston. Their version of grit ‘n’ grind that got them to seven straight playoff berths might not work with this current roster. Memphis still has guard Mike Conley and center Marc Gasol. And yes, the playoffs remain their goal with a retooled roster. By Teresa M. Walker. SENT: 740 words, photos.
