Colorado State vs. Nevada game preview: Rams, Wolf Pack collide in Reno

The top half of the Mountain West is crowded and seeding is definitely on the line.

It's been a rough season for the Colorado State Rams (15-13,7-8) and it won't get any easier when they travel to Reno to take on the Nevada Wolf Pack (17-10,9-6) this Sunday.

The Rams were finally able to put it all together this past Tuesday as they took down New Mexico to end a three game skid. They will need the same complete game effort if they hope to stop Wolf Pack who have won four of their last five.

The Wolf Pack are in a three way tie for third place in the Mountain West but head into this one with their leading scorer in doubt. Senior guard Marqueze Coleman sprained his ankle in the Wolf Pack's win against Utah State is doubtful for Sunday's game. The Wolf Pack will look to senior guard Tyron Criswell and junior forward D.J. Fenner to pick up the slack.

The Rams have to hold their own against the Wolf Pack on the boards. Nevada leads the Mountain West in rebounding with 41 a game. That means if the Rams outside shooting goes cold, which it has from time to time this season, than redshirt senior forward Tiel Daniels and junior Emmanuel Omogbo will have their work cut out for them in the paint for any second chance points.

It will be a blackout at Lawlor Events Center in Reno. Tip off is scheduled for Sunday at 3pm MST and can be seen on ROOT Sports.
