After a close loss, the Rams respond with a convincing victory.
CSU gains momentum heading into the Mountain West tournament.
Both teams were coming into this game off of close results in their previous contests. Air Force won a close contest over New Mexico, while Colorado State lost a heart breaker against the Aztecs. This time it was the Rams earning a convincing victory heading into the Mountain West tournament.
On a day that was supposed to be about the seniors, it was a sophomore who stole the show. Kendle Moore had himself a day finishing with 21 points on 7-11 shooting. All of Moore’s attempts came from behind the arc. It wasn’t all individual effort for the Rams, as they finished with 25 assists on 29 made baskets.
The Rams seniors had a quiet day themselves. Nico Carvacho was the leading senior on the day finishing with 12 points and six rebounds. Kris Martin finished with six points and Hyron Edwards finished with two points and five assists.
Air Force had trouble taking off today. A slow start turned into a 14 point deficit at halftime. The engines seemed to wake up in the second half as they were able to outscore the Rams, but the Falcons couldn’t do enough to hold off Colorado State.
The Falcons had three players finish in double figures. They were led by Lavelle Scottie who finished with 20 points. Joining him in double figures were A.J. Walker with 15 points and Ryan Swan with 12 points. Swan also grabbed 10 rebounds to finish with a double-double.
Colorado State is locked into the sixth seed and will face Wyoming in the first round of the Mountain West tournament. Air Force is the ninth seed and will face either Fresno State or New Mexico in the first round.
