TOURNEY WATCH: 3/22/2011

It's a small world after all...

The only game of relevance Monday night occurred in Pullman, Wash., where the second-seeded Washington St. Cougars dispatched the third-seeded Oklahoma St. Cowboys to advance to the NIT quarterfinals.

Although the final margin was 10 points, the game really wasn't that close. Wazzu jumped out to a 9-0 lead and led by double digits for much of the game. Marshall Moses finished with just two points in his final college game and Keiton Page bricked two consecutive free throws after WSU students serenaded him with "It's a Small World After All."

It was an ugly performance from the Cowboys — who finished 20-14, 1-9 on the road — but not an unexpected one.

Travis Ford will enter 2011-12 on the hot seat, in my opinion. He has a five-star player, LeBryan Nash, coming in to complement Markel Brown, Jean-Paul Olukemi and Page, and he will be expected to return to the NCAA Tournament.
