Sports Minute: Here is the latest Texas sports news from The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Russell Westbrook responded to Kevin Durant's departure from Oklahoma City with a record-setting season. Westbrook will learn if he's rewarded with NBA MVP honors during the league's award show. He became the first player since Oscar Robertson in 1961-62 to average a triple-double for a season and won the scoring title. He broke Robertson's single-season record with 42 triple-doubles and led the Thunder to the playoffs. Houston's James Harden and San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard are other finalists.

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) - Jordan Spieth holed out from 60 feet for birdie from a greenside bunker on the first hole of a playoff with Daniel Berger to win the Travelers Championship. The 23-year-old Spieth joined Tiger Woods as the only players in the modern era with 10 victories before the turned 24.

SEATTLE (AP) - George Springer, Yuli Gurriel and Evan Gattis hit long home runs and the Houston Astros wrapped up another winning road trip, beating the Seattle Mariners 8-2.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Alex Faedo pitched three-hit ball for 7 1/3 shutout innings in a second straight strong performance against TCU, and Florida moved to the College World Series finals with a 3-0 win.

(AP) - Doug Fister is again pitching for Dave Dombrowski, a reunion between a pitcher and an executive with plenty of history. Dombrowski made a number of big trades when he was with the Detroit Tigers, and two of them involved Fister.

NEW YORK (AP) - Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo and Drew Robinson each homered off Michael Pineda to build a seven-run lead, and the Texas Rangers held on to beat the New York Yankees 7-6. The Rangers improved to 11-5 over their past 16 games, but had to hold off New York's powerful offense to do it. Matt Bush struck out Gary Sanchez to cap his ninth save.

ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - So Yeon Ryu became the LPGA Tour's first two-time winner this season, taking the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship with a tournament-record 18-under 195 total.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lance Armstrong's $100 million fraud trial is months away, yet his fight with the government and former teammate-turned-rival Floyd Landis is heating up. Armstrong wants to bar testimony and evidence, including the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that led to his downfall. Landis doesn't want Armstrong telling jurors about his own doping history or question his motives in a case that could earn him more than $20 million. Trial is scheduled for November.
