Rams Win Close One Over Montana 62 - 61




With 9.6 seconds left freshman Dorian Green knocked down two free throws to put the Rams up and the defense did the rest as they stopped Montana's last two attempts. The Rams sit at 7-4 on the season and Montana dropped to 6-4.  It was an odd game for the Rams as instead of doing the little stuff needed to win they just out shot Montana.

CSU lead by 7 and half while holding Montana to 33% shooting in the first half and 43% for the game.  The Rams shot 50% from the field and 7-15 from behind the arc.  What hurt the Rams was their poor free throw shooting, only hitting 11-22.  Montana also kept it close by only turning it over 9 times to the Rams 17.  Montana also held the advantages in steals 10-4 over CSU.  The Rams did win the rebound margin 35-29.  It was a very tight game as both teams had ups and downs. 

CSU will host Northern Arizona next Sunday, December 20th, as the last of their four game home strand.
