LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Larry Eustachy is 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.
Colorado State (25-8) is back thanks to Eustachy, and senior transfer Colton Iverson. After averaging just over five points a game in three years at Minnesota, the forward/center is averaging 14.7 per points contest to help lead the eighth-seeded Rams into Thursday's second-round Midwest Regional game against No. 9 seed Missouri (23-10).
The 57-year old Eustachy has also taken Iowa State and Utah State to the NCAA tournament, and the Rams' return to the postseason is an indication of how well his latest move is going.
