The Rams played Fresno a few weeks ago at Moby. They won 74-67 but that was at home and with a fully-functinal Dorian Greene. What do they need to do to win at Thomas & Mack? Shut down Olekaibe. He scored six three-pointers agains the Rams at the end of February and they do not have the luxury to give him those opportunities and still win anymore. Check out some highlights from their last game and see what they look like going into to this one.

All the build up for a game featuring two top 25 teams and the conference lead up for grabs made Moby Arena a hot ticket to get, but it was not as hot as New Mexico’s junior guard Kendall Williams.

Williams finished with a career high 46 points — nearly twice his previous career high of 24 — and set a Mountain West Conference record by hitting 10 3-pointers as the Lobos came into Moby and ended Colorado State’s 27-game home win streak Saturday, knocking off the Rams 91-82.

While Williams was sent to the bench with nine minutes to play and four fouls, the Rams took a six-point lead and looked as though they might extend their home win-streak to 28, but instead Williams returned to the game and helped lead the Lobos on a 27-12 run down the stretch and poured in 18 more points in the process.

Nex Mexico increased their lead to two games in a highly contested conference race moving to 10-2 in Mountain West play and 23-4 overall, while the Rams dropped to 8-4 in conference and 21-5 overall.

The Rams were unable to gain any real momentum in the game as everytime the home crowd got into it, Williams would answer with a dagger from long range.

Colton Iverson had a monster game for the Rams with 26 points and 15 rebounds, but missed on some free throws late that hurt the Ram’s chances of mounting a comeback. Wes Eikmeier and Dorian Green had 22 and 20 points respectively for the Rams.

The Rams were coming off a tough loss on the road against UNLV by two points on Wednesday, which snapped their six-game winning streak that started after their loss to New Mexico the first time around in Albuquerque last month.

The last time CSU lost at home was Nov. 11, 2012, to Southern Miss., which was coached at the time by the team’s current coach Larry Eustachy, who took the Rams job last offseason.

The Rams will try and get back on the winning track on Wednesday, Feb. 27, when they host Fresno State at 7 p.m. MT at Moby Arena.

The Colorado State Men’s basketball team has officially been ranked as the No. 24 team in the nation by the AP and Coach’s Poll

The last time the rams received a national ranking came all the way back in 1954.

The ranking follows the Rams tough win at Nevada, winning by just 4 points.

To go along with their No. 24 ranking, the Rams basketball team also has the 15th best RPI in the nation, and as of today, the Rams are the No. 1 rebounding team in the nation, averaging 42.4 rebounds per game.

Now that the Rams are ranked, the matchup Wednesday against the San Diego State Aztecs, has become much more interesting. The Aztecs are ranked as well, two spots above the Rams at No. 22.

This means that this Wednesday will be the first game in Moby’s history to feature two ranked teams playing each other.

The game Wednesday is an Orange Out as well, and tickets are expected to sell out soon.

The game starts at 8PM MT this Wednesday.

25 consecutive home wins is impressive. What’s more impressive? 26 straight.

That’s exactly what the CSU Rams did against the Wyoming Cowboys tonight at Moby Arena in the annual Border War game.

The Rams had just come off what Coach Eustachy called, “The best game we’ve played all year” against Boise State on Wednesday.

The Rams did what they do best against the Cowboys, rebound. Rams managed to grab 42 rebounds to Wyoming’s 28.

But it was what the Rams managed to do on defense that propelled them to a 19 point win. Wyoming only managed to shoot 29% from the field.

“It starts with all five guys on the court,” said Rams guard, Dorian Green.

Not to mention the Rams played at Moby as well, where they haven’t lost since 2011. The University of Kansas Jayhawks lost their home game to Oklahoma State today, giving the Rams a now third best home winning streak in the nation.

Five Rams ended the game in double figures. Pierce Hornung finished the game with a double-double, the Rams are now 9-1 when that happens.

The Rams also got a huge contribution from Daniel Bejarano at the end of the half, hitting two three-pointers in the final minute of the first half, giving the Rams a momentum boost and lead they kept in the second half.

“We have a huge upside that we’re going to keep moving towards,” Coach Eustachy said about the team’s performance.

The Ram’s next opportunity to move forward will be in Reno, Nevada, when they take on the Wolfpack, Wednesday, February 6th.

The Colorado State Men’s Basketball team is just about to take the court against the Wyoming Cowboys in the annual “Border War” game.

The game has sold out and Moby expects this game to have the largest student turn out of the year so far.

Some intrigue was added to the game earlier today when the University of Kansas lost at home to Oklahoma State, giving the Rams the third longest home winning streak in the nation at 25.

The Rams will try to make it 26 straight against the Cowboys, which will be no easy task.

Wyoming has been somewhat of a surprise in the Mountain West this year, sporting a 15-5 record.

Check back later to see highlights of the game.

CSU Men’s Basketball Gets First Conference Road Win of the Season

After a disappointing road loss to #15 New Mexico last Wednesday, the Rams were able to travel to Fresno State and win decisively.

The game was a team effort, with all five of their starters scoring in double digits. Dorian Green led the scoring with 17 points. Colton Iverson had a relatively quiet game, but still managed to have a double-double, with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

It had been nearly two months since CSU won a game on the road. Despite having won their last 24 games in a row at Moby (4th best current home winning streak in the nation), the Rams were only 2-4 in road games this season before heading to Fresno.

But not winning on the road hasn’t meant they have not been competitive in these games. On January 12th, the Rams took the 16th ranked San Diego State Aztecs into overtime before losing. When the Rams travelled to play #15 UNM last week, the Rams only lost by 5, despite having possibly their worst shooting in any game this season. The Rams only made a little more than half of their free throws, while shooting only 37% from the field.

Against Fresno however, the Rams made 85% of their free throws. Colton Iverson missed the majority of those free throws; the four other starters only missed one free throw the entire game.

The Rams also shot 44% from the field, numbers that the Rams are more familiar with this season.

The next game for the Rams should be a much tougher test than the last place Fresno State Bulldogs. The Boise State Broncos come into Moby on Wednesday, with a 14-5 record. However, the Rams maybe catching the Broncos in the middle of a slump; the Broncos have won only one of their last four games. If the Rams play like they normally do at Moby, they should not have much trouble with the Broncos.

Be sure to cheer on your Rams on Wednesday at Moby at 7PM.
