RPI WATCH: 3/4/2011

New, 35 comments

Emporia State and North Florida both advanced in their conference tournaments Thursday night with first-round wins.

The Hornets sprung a mild upset on the boys from T-Town, while the Ospreys did something their less-directionally inclined brethren from Gainesville could not: Beat Jacksonville.

As is usual in the SWAC, Texas Southern toyed with another victim and Alcorn State lost yet another game to a fellow cellar-dwelling denizen.

Finally, Washington State avenged a prior loss to USC to keep itself on the extreme fringe of the NCAA bubble.
