Southern Miss 66, Toledo 59

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Michael Craig scored 16 points, Neil Watson added 12 and Southern Mississippi rallied to beat Toledo 66-59 on Wednesday night in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament.

It was a strange night for Southern Miss (28-6), which grabbed a big lead in the first half, lost it early in the second and then rallied to win by a fairly comfortable margin.

The game remained tight until Aaron Brown's corner 3-pointer with 4:22 left gave Southern Miss a 57-51 advantage.

Julius Brown led the Rockets (27-7) with 19 points.


Cal Poly 81, Texas Southern 69

DAYTON -- Chris Eversley scored 19 points and Cal Poly avoided its 20th loss of the season and won its first NCAA tournament game with an 81-69 victory over Texas Southern on Wednesday night in the First Four.

The Mustangs (14-19) were 0-3 and 4-9 early before losing nine of 11 heading into the Big West Conference tournament -- which they won to earn the program's first NCAA bid.

The team with the worst record in the tournament now moves on to face the one with the best -- top-seeded Wichita State (34-0) -- in the second round in St. Louis on Friday.
