Why Colorado State Will Win

This could be the breakout game for Nico Carvacho. The sophomore center was electric in the preseason, seemingly recording at least 20 points and 10 rebounds every time on the floor. Carvacho will match up with Winthrop’s Josh Ferguson who, at just 6’8″ and 200 pounds, is three inches shorter and 40 pounds lighter than Carvacho. I expect Carvacho to take this game over by asserting himself down low, both on the offensive and defensive end. He’ll notch his first 20/10 performance of his career as Colorado State pulls away late.
