The Colorado State Rams men’s basketball team enjoyed their greatest season ever, setting a school-record at 27-6, but were ultimately snubbed on selection Sunday. It was sad for seniors, especially, and for the entire squad. Their shocking exclusion from the NCAA Tournament left CSU shook up and the Rams dropped their first round National Invitation Tournament game. But to add...

“It took a lot out of us, Sunday,” Colorado State head coach Larry Eustachy said of the NCAA Tournament snub. It could clearly be seen in the Rams team that showed up Wednesday night. CSU came out flat in their National Invitation Tournament opener against South Dakota State. SDSU, on the other hand, started the game with all the energy,...

Colorado Sate didn’t deserve this. “Team Together,” led by three senior stars, didn’t deserve this decision from the selection committee on Sunday. While Mountain West cohorts Wyoming – who won the Mountain West Tournament for an auto-bid – San Diego State and Boise State made it in, it became clear CSU would be the one left out. No way the...

SDSU played like a championship team from the first tip, taking a quick 7-3 lead to start. But the Rams fought stalwartly and put together an 8-0 run of...

Even with leading scorer and likely best passer J.J. Avila going down in the first half with an ankle sprain, the Colorado State Rams men’s basketball team caught fire from outside and dominated the glass inside to win 71-59.

After a fantastic finish to the regular season, which included five straight wins and multiple honors for Colorado State men’s basketball players, tourney time begins. For 26-5 CSU, it’s been a season full of mostly ups – including a Top-25 ranking – and only a few downs. While the Rams, who sport a 26th-best RPI in the nation, likely have...

J.J. Avila is enjoying a good week. That’s putting it lightly. First and foremost, Avila was named Mountain West Player of the Week for his two great games, leading his Colorado State Rams to two victories over the Nevada Wolfpack and Utah State Aggies. In those two wins, Avila scored 27 and 29 points respectfully. His regular season finale performance...
