      LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Isaiah Canaan scored 15 points in Murray
State's return to the NCAA tournament after a two-year wait, and
Donte Poole added 13 to lead the Racers to a 58-41 victory over
Colorado State on Thursday in the second round.
      Canaan mishandled the ball in the closing seconds of a two-point
loss to Butler in 2010 as a freshman. He's the leader of this group
now, and Murray State (31-1) expects a long run in this tournament
as the mid-major darlings.
      Poole scored Murray State's first eight points early, and the
sixth-seeded Racers shook off an 11-day wait with an 18-2 rally to
start the second half.
      Pierce Hornung led Colorado State (20-12) with 12 points and
matched a career-high with 17 rebounds for the 11th-seeded Rams,
who were making their first tournament appearance since 2003.
