Colorado State Vs. Stanford Final Score: Rams' Dreams Of Madison Square Garden Dashed In 64-52 Loss

Gabriel Harris' buzzer-beating three-point shot at halftime propelled the Stanford Cardinal to a second-half turnaround against the Colorado St. Rams for the 64-52 win. The Rams led by 11 points late in the first half before Harris' three concluded an 11-2 run to end the half down by just two points, 33-31.

The Rams had a 41-36 lead over the Cardinal in the second, but a three by Aaron Bright and a Josh Owens steal and a dunk tied the game at 41. For a brief moment, the Rams regained the lead after that, but Bright sank another three to regain Stanford's lead. The Cardinal began to pull away after that.

The Rams shot over 40 percent during the first half of the game, but finished at 33.9 percent (21-of-62). The team sank just four of its 16 threes, but they were really hurt by 13 turnovers and 19 personal fouls.

Wes Eikmeier had a team-high 13 points while Greg Smith put in 10 points and grabbed nine boards. The two combined for nine of the teams 13 turnovers.

The 2-1 Rams face the Southern Miss. Golden Eagles on Nov. 19.
