Chris Eversley had 19 points, David Nwaba 17 and Bennett - who was a perfect 5 for 5 from the field - added 10 for Cal Poly. The only other 19-loss team to win was Bradley (7-19), which won a game but lost in the final eight in 1955.

The Mustangs came in shooting 41 percent from the field for the season but made 57 percent (29 of 51) in the program’s NCAA debut.

Davis, who also led Indiana and UAB to the big tournament, preferred to credit Cal Poly and look at what his team had accomplished.

“Any time you make the NCAA tournament, that’s history,” he said. “Your name will go down as the team who made it.”
