Can the Colorado State men’s basketball team build real momentum with back-to-back significant wins?
The Rams have truly been on a roller coaster ride this season, filled with big wins (eg, at Saint Mary’s, at UNLV) and bad losses (against Northern Colorado and the Air Force).
It’s fair to say that CSU didn’t string together significant wins all season.
To do that, the Rams may need their best game of the season so far when they host preseason favorites San Diego State on Wednesday.
The tip on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. will be broadcast by FS1. Here’s what you need to know about the game and how to watch and listen online.
