Carson makes his point for Suns

PHOENIX -- Jahii Carson learned to quit sweatin' the small stuff years ago. While tearing up the club-ball circuit as an East Valley grade-school phenom, it was posited he'd never be big enough.

ASU's Vegas mission: Eliminate any doubts

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State refuses to enter the Pac-12 tournament in "safe" mode as it pertains to the school's impending NCAA tournament appearance, results notwithstanding, and that might be the safest approach.
