Colorado State first-year coach Larry Eustachy is taking his fourth school to the NCAA tournament. The Rams earned an at-large bid Sunday. They're the eighth seed in the Midwest and will face No. 9 seed Missouri at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Ky., on Thursday. Eustachy took over from Tim Miles in April and led a senior-laden team to a 25-8 record. Along the way, the Rams jumped into the rankings for the first time in 59 years and were runners-up to No. 15 New Mexico in the ultra-tough Mountain West Conference, which sent five teams to the NCAA tournament. Eustachy also guided Southern Miss, Iowa State and Utah State to the NCAA tournament before coming to Fort Collins when Miles left for Nebraska.
