I. To determine if rituximab concurrently with radiation followed by maintenance rituximab offers a superior benefit over radiation alone. Specifically looking at the progression free survival.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients undergo radiation therapy five days a week for 2.5 weeks (12 treatments) and receive rituximab intravenously (IV) over 4-6 hours weekly with the start of radiation for 4 weeks and then every 2 months for up to 4 additional doses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients undergo radiation therapy five days a week for 2.5 weeks and then undergo observation.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3 and 6 months, every 6 months for 2 years, yearly for 3 years, and then every 2 years for 10 years.

- Proportion of patients that remain progression free, defined as progressive disease or death due to disease [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]The student t-test or the Wilcoxon rank sum test will be used to compare continuous variables between two different patient groups. The chi-square test or the Fisher's exact test will then be applied to assess the association between two categorical variables. Logistic regression will be utilized to assess the effect of patient prognostic factors on the response rate. Kaplan-Meier survival curves will also be constructed.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]Estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method. The log-rank test will be performed to test the difference in time-to-event distributions between patient groups. The Cox proportional hazards model will be utilized to include multiple covariates in the time-to-event analysis.
