Wyoming Vs. Colorado State: Rams Try To Get Back On The Tournament Bubble

The Colorado St. Rams (15-9, 4-5) take on the Wyoming Cowboys (18-7, 4-5) on Saturday night.

The Colorado State Rams and the Wyoming Cowboys have both scuffled recently, and each team will be trying to break a two-game losing streak when they meet up at Moby Arena on Saturday night. The Rams have been terrific at home this season, sporting an 11-1 record at Moby Arena, while the Cowboys are just 5-4 on the road. Junior guard Wes Eikmeier leads Colorado State in scoring with 16.7 points per game, and he has been especially hot recently. Last Saturday he scored 26 points on 9-14 shooting against the TCU Horned Frogs, and followed that up with a 30 point performance against the Boise State Broncos on Wednesday.

SB Nation's Mountain West Conference athletics blog, Mountain West Connection, breaks down how the Rams still have an outside chance to make the NCAA tournament:

Wyoming is no longer being considered after losing two straight games after defeating UNLV, and Colorado State has slipped as well by losing back-to-back games to TCU and Boise State. Colorado State still has a chance to get back into the NCAA tournament picture as they still play New Mexico, San Diego State and UNLV, so if Colorado State can somehow win two of those games they should earn consideration for the NCAA tournament.

Here is some information to help you find the game on Saturday.
