LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Dorian Green scored 17 of his 26 points in the first half and eighth-seeded Colorado State used good shooting to run away from No. 9 Missouri 84-72 Thursday night in the NCAA tournament.
Green, who went scoreless with five turnovers in last year's second-round upset to Murray State, did much better this time as the Rams shot nearly 58 percent in the first half.
Minnesota transfer and Rams big man Colton Iverson outrebounded Missouri by himself through 27 minutes and finished with 13 boards.
First-year Rams coach Larry Eustachy earned the victory with his fourth tournament team, but the road gets tougher as they advance to face top-seeded Louisville in Saturday's third-round Midwest Regional game at Rupp Arena.
Phil Pressey's 20 points led the Tigers (23-11).

The fan seemed a little bored in the first half, as cameras caught him yawning despite the fact that Colorado State had a 7-point lead over Missouri.
However, he woke up in the second half and delivered a...

Larry Eustachy in back in the NCAA tournament with another team.
The coach is making his second-consecutive appearance in the tournament, this year with Colorado State - the fourth team he's led to the NCAAs. Last year, he guided Southern Mississippi to the tournament.

Now THIS is what the NCAA Tournament is all about. One Colorado State fan was so pumped for his team’s second round game against Missouri yesterday that he actually wore a full ram suit to the arena.
Since the Rams won, we assume he’ll be back on Saturday for another go-around. Hopefully in between, he’ll get that thing washed.

I don’t think anyone is necessarily putting Louisville on upset alert for Saturday’s game against Colorado State, but the Cardinals will definitely be put to the test. The Rams looked more than impressive last night in their 84-72 win over Missouri. Here is a closer look at Colorado State’s overall resume.
Overall record: 25-8
Conference record: 11-5
Later today, the Colorado State men's basketball team will face the Louisville Cardinals in the round of 32 at the NCAA men's basketball tournament at approximately at 5:15 est/2:15 pst.

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Louisville men’s basketball team hopes to take another step towards a national championship on Saturday night. But the Cardinals will have to clear a major hurdle – Colorado State – in the third round of the NCAA Tournament in Rupp Arena. Cardinal Authority has a preview of the game.
It was a rather tame first day of the college basketball super-buffet that is NCAA Tournament’s first day. Well, until the Harvard Crimson broke brackets everywhere and everyone pretended to be a Harvard fan on Twitter for 15 minutes. And then ESPN slobbered all over the Ivy-Leaguers making it even worse. However, the college hoops Christmas gave us this:
