TOURNEY WATCH: 3/16/2011

As he demonstrated with a monster performance Tuesday night, Marshall Moses isn't quite ready for his senior season to end.

Oklahoma State started its NIT run with a resounding bang, posting a dominant 71-54 home win over Ivy league darling Harvard on Tuesday night.

Marshall Moses scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds.

That's certainly better than the performance the Cowboys delivered in Travis Ford's inaugural year, when they traveled to Carbondale, Ill., for a first-round match-up with the Southern Illinois Salukis and just got housed.

The Cowboys will advance to face the winner between Long Beach State and Washington State.

I hope it's the latter, so we can compare two opponents and see how they fare against each other.

Of course, the game would be in Pullman, which would suck for OSU's chances to advance because the Pokes are a terrible road team.

Witness their demolition at Gonzaga on New Year's Eve the last time they traveled to Washington, for instance.

In the thrilling CBI, James Madison was ejected unceremoniously by Davidson, 85-65. The Dukes finished the season 21-12.
