(TSX / STATS) -- Sebastian Saiz posted a milestone double-double and Deandre Burnett got hot in the second half, leading Mississippi past Monmouth 91-83 Tuesday in the first round of the NIT at OceanFirst Bank Center in West Long Beach, N.J.

Burnett scored 16 of his 18 points after halftime, and Saiz finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds for his 21st double-double, a single-season school record.
