The Eastern Conference has won the highest-scoring NBA All-Star game ever....
     NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Eastern Conference has won the highest-scoring NBA All-Star game ever.  Kyrie Irving was named the game's MVP after scoring 31 points and collecting 14 assists to lead the East past the West 163-155. Irving scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, and the East closed on a 10-0 run over the final 1:59 to win it for the first time in four tries.
 
     LeBron James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the winners, who trailed by 18 at one point.
 
     The West lost despite Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin, who had 38 points apiece to finish four shy of Wilt Chamberlain's All-Star record. Griffin shot 19 of 23, while Durant finished with 10 rebounds and six assists.

     UNDATED (AP) - The college basketball season will enter another Monday with two unbeaten teams. Fourth-ranked Wichita State kept their perfect record intact on Sunday, one day after No. 1 Syracuse escaped with a two-point win at home.
 
     Ron Baker poured in 26 points and Fred VanVleet had a dominant performance as the Shockers downed Evansville 84-68. VanVleet finished with 18 points, eight assists and five steals to help Wichita improve to 27-0, extending its school-record winning streak.  The Shockers are the 21st team in Division I history to go 27-0, a list the Orange could join later this week.
 
     Both Michigan and Michigan State lost on their home court, leaving them tied for the Big 12 lead.
 
     Frank Kaminsky had 25 points and 11 rebounds for No. 21 Wisconsin in a 75-62 win over the 15th-ranked Wolverines. Michigan cut an 18-point deficit to three in the second half, but Kaminsky personally went on a 7-2 run after that, helping Wisconsin regain control and improve to 21-5.
 
     That opened the door for No. 9 Michigan State to take sole possession of the conference lead, but Nebraska stunned the Spartans 60-51 behind 23 points from Terran Petteway and 18 from Walter Pitchford. The 14-10 Cornhuskers led 32-25 at the half and held off a second-half surge with a 9-2 closing run.
 
     In other top 25 play:
 
     - Luke Hancock drained six 3-pointers while scoring a career-high 25 points to lead 13th-ranked Louisville to a 102-54 romp over Rutgers. The Cardinals shot 56 percent from the field, including a season-best 16 of their 30 shots from behind the arc in posting their easiest win of the season.
 
     - Doug McDermott matched his season high with 39 points as No. 18 Creighton defeated sixth-ranked Villanova 101-80. McDermott went over 30 points for the ninth time this season and moved past Larry Bird into 13th place on the all-time NCAA Division I scoring list.
 
     - Dalton Pepper scored 24 points and Temple stunned No. 23 SMU 71-64. The Mustangs are in danger of falling out of the AP poll after cracking it last week for the first time in 29 years.

     DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Austin Dillon put the famed No. 3 back out front at Daytona International Speedway.  Dillon won the pole for the season-opening Daytona 500 driving the No. 3 Chevrolet.  It's a car Richard Childress had refused to field at NASCAR's top level since Dale Earnhardt's fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 race.
 
     But with his 23-year-old grandson ready to move to the Sprint Cup Series, Childress allowed Dillon to use the number widely associated with the seven-time champion.  Dillon turned a lap at 196.019 mph to win the pole.
 
     Martin Truex Jr. qualified second with a lap at 195.852 mph in a Furniture Row Racing Chevrolet that gets its engine from Childress.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have agreed to a $42 million, four-year contract with All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel, avoiding arbitration with the 25-year old. The Braves also hold a $13 million option for 2018 with a $1 million buyout.  Kimbrel has 138 saves in the last three seasons, including 50 saves with a 1.21 ERA and 98 strikeouts in 67 innings last year.
 
     Elsewhere:
 
     - A.J. Burnett and the Philadelphia Phillies have finalized a contract that guarantees the pitcher $15 million for 2014 and $22.5 million over two seasons. Burnett revived his career with Pittsburgh the last two seasons, pitching to a 3.31 ERA and winning 26 games.
 
     - Outfielder Josh Reddick and the Oakland Athletics avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $2.7 million, one-year contract. The 26-year-old hit .226 with 12 homers and 56 RBIs in 114 games last year, when he went to the disabled list twice because of a sprained right wrist that required offseason surgery.
 

     - Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster says he's taking this season off but is leaving open the possibility of playing in 2015. The 36-year-old right-hander says he is stepping away for physical reasons and to spend more time with his family.

     SOCHI, Russia (AP) - Andrew Weibrecht and Bode Miller allowed the United States to come away with two medals in the men's super-G at Sochi.  The 36-year-old Miller tied for the bronze to become the oldest Olympics Alpine medalist. It's his sixth medal over 12 years of Olympic competition.
 
     Weibrecht claimed silver after capturing bronze in Vancouver four years ago. He's suffered through a number of surgeries and lost his sponsorship from the U.S. ski team since then.
 
     Norway's Kjetil Jansrud won the gold medal.
 
     In other Olympics news;
 
     - The U.S. men's hockey team completed a perfect 3-0 run through the opening round with a 5-1 win over Slovenia.  Phil Kessel recorded the first American hat trick in the Olympics since 2002.  Ryan Miller lost his shutout bid with 17.6 seconds left in the game.  He made 17 saves in his Sochi debut. The Americans finished atop Group A and earned an automatic spot in the quarterfinals.

     - Meryl Davis and Charlie White are on pace to become the first Americans to win Olympic gold in ice dancing after taking the short dance.

     - Steven Holcomb is third after the first two runs of the two-man bobsled.  He trails leader Alexander Zubkov of Russia by 36-hundredths of a second with two runs to go.
