Zags fall 62-58

Gonzaga rallied from a 13-point deficit in the second half, but Memphis scored 9 of the game's last 11 points and won 62-58 at the Spokane Arena.

Antonio Barton's two free throws with 1.9 seconds clinched the Tigers' win. He also hit an elbow jumper that gave Memphis a 62-60 lead with 35.2 seconds left. Elias Harris missed a mid-range jumper and Robert Sacre had the ball poked away in the closing seconds as Gonzaga, down two, tried for the tying or potential game-winning basket.

Steven Gray led GU with 12 points. Kelly Olynyk added 10.

Barton topped Memphis with 17 points.
