Colorado State Vs. Northern Illinois Final Score: Rams Win 92-78 On The Road

The Colorado State Rams rode some impressive shooting to a 92-78 victory over the Northern Colorado Bears on Thursday night. It's the first road win of the season for Colorado State, which had previously lost its first three games away from home. 

Colorado State had its offense running on all cylinders on Thursday, as the team shot 59 percent from the field and knocked down 13 of 24 shots from beyond three-point range. They also committed just seven turnovers, with a plus-9 turnover margin being an integral part of why they won the game

Junior guard Dorian Green was positively fantastic for the Rams on Thursday night, leading all scorers with an impressive 36 points. Beyond the volume, his efficiency was equally impressive, as he knocked down 8 of 10 shots from beyond three-point range and 11 of 16 shots overall, as well as a perfect 8-for-8 mark from the free throw stripe. The Rams also had four other players scoring in double-figures.

Northern Colorado had a pretty evened out attack on Thursday, with seven players scoring at least eight points apiece but no player scoring more than 15. Tate Unruh led the way for the Bears with those 15 points, and Tevin Svihovec put up 11 points during the game. Free throws were key for the Bears, as they knocked down 25 of 29 shots there.
