The Radford Highlanders battle the Old Dominion Monarchs in a second round CBI tilt on Monday.
Although the CBI is hardly the 'big name' as far as postseason tournaments go we saw one of the bigger upsets when unheralded Radford of the Big South outscored Oregon State 96-92 on the road in a tourney opener. The Highlanders don't mind running and gunning and that's exactly what they did with the Beavers for 40 minutes. OSU held a 59%-57% shooting edge but the visitors held a 13-6 advantage from beyond the arc. Ya Ya Anderson led the scoring spree with 23 points with Javonta Greenand RJ Price netting 20 points apiece while Rashun Davis and Jalen Carethers tossed in 14 and ten points.

Old Dominion was just a pick 'em at home versus South Dakota State which said may be the Jackrabbits would be the team to advance in the CBI. Not so as the normally controlled Monarchs attack exploded for 48 first half points and a 15 point lead and the Jackrabbits never were in sync thereafter. ODU held a 44%-41% shooting edge but won it at the charity stripe with 16 SDSU personals turned in to a 14-8 advantage. Dimitri Batten was high scorer with 18 points on 4-6 from distance with Ambrose Mosley adding 16 points and six yanks followed Richard Ross and Aaron Bacote with 12 and ten points respectively.
Radford has got to find a way to make shots and score and if they do I think this will be a competitive. If they don't this could be a DD victory for the Monarchs...
