The start of Thursday's Mountain West Tournament game between Colorado State and Texas Christian had to be delayed after a Colorado State cheerleader suffered an injury during the pre-game period. The Rams and Horned Frogs are preparing for a quarterfinal round matchup that in one case could help solidify an NCAA tournament bid and in the other, preserve the dream of reaching the NCAAs via a MWC Tournament title.
