Colorado State Rams Men’s Basketball
Last Week: 3
CSU closed out the regular season by beating Wyoming in a tight contest before falling to Nevada in what was a battle for the Mountain West regular season title. The loss put an end to the teams seven game win streak and forces the Rams to play the tournament as the number two seed. They face the winner of Wyoming and Air Force in round two of the tournament and hopefully will be able to extract some revenge against Nevada in the Mountain West final.

The Rams experienced a slight bump in the road this week when they suffered a loss on the road against Wyoming. However, it was quickly forgotten as the careers of seniors Elin Gustavsson and Ellen Nystrom were applauded during the teams final home game of the season, a 64-51 win over Nevada. The women were also officially awarded the Mountain West conference’s regular season title — their fourth in a row. The Rams now face the winner of San Diego State and San Jose State in round two of the Mountain West tournament.
