Colorado State vs. Colorado: Huge non-conference game set for Wednesday night

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Wednesday's game between the Rams and the Buffaloes could have huge NCAA Tournament implications for both teams.

With both Colorado and Colorado State coming off of NCAA Tournament appearances, their non-conference game in Boulder on Wednesday is one of the biggest basketball games in the history of their rivalry.

The Buffaloes, who already have signature wins over Baylor and Murray State, would get another boost of their resume with a win over the Rams, particularly important because the Pac-12 is widely viewed as going through a down spell.

Colorado State, meanwhile, is currently undefeated, but since they've yet to play a nationally ranked team, their strong start has yet to garner much attention.

Colorado is led by two future NBA players in Andre Roberson, a versatile inside-out 6'7 combo forward, and Spencer DinWiddie, a long and athletic 6'5 guard. They'll be looking to rebound after their first loss of the season, a 76-69 defeat at Wyoming last Saturday.

Colorado State has been playing around 6'10, 260 senior center Colton Iverson, a transfer for Minnesota who sat out last season and is averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds on 64 percent shooting.

The game will be played at 8:30 Mountain Time and will be broadcast regionally on the Pac-12 Network.
