Cal Poly Continues Cinderalla Run with 81-69 Win Over Texas Southern in First Four of NCAA Tournament

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Chris Eversley scored 19 points and Cal Poly avoided its 20th loss of the season and won its first NCAA tournament game with an 81-69 victory over Texas Southern on Wednesday night in the First Four.

The Mustangs (14-19) were 0-3 and 4-9 early before losing nine of 11 heading into the Big West Conference tournament -- which they won to earn the program's first NCAA bid.

The team with the worst record in the tournament now moves on to face the one with the best -- top-seeded Wichita State (34-0) -- in the second round in St. Louis on Friday.

Aaric Murray, the former La Salle and West Virginia player, closed out his career with 38 points for Texas Southern (19-15), champs of the Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament.
