Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant both turned in 30+ point showings, but their efforts weren’t enough to stop the Phoenix Suns at home. Last night’s game came down to the wire, with Phoenix pulling out a 128-122 win. Gerald Green led the Suns with a career-high 41 points, while Markieff Morris (pictured) and Goran Dragic also contributed in a big way.

As March Madness approaches, several conference titles are still being determined. From Cincinnati, Ohio, No. 6 Villanova topped Xavier to lock down the Big East. Just minutes away, No. 15 Cincinnati dropped No. 20 Memphis 97-84. In East Lansing, No. 22 Michigan State was able to finish second in the Big Ten with a win over No. 24 Iowa.
All this plus more NBA coverage and No. 23 Iowa in women’s hoops action after the break.
