FORT COLLINS, Colo. — This was a grinders victory.
Not pretty at all (the refs made sure of that) and it took plenty of steely determination, but the Colorado State men’s basketball found the win.
The Rams won a tight, foul-filled, gritty 77-72 game over Utah State on Wednesday at Moby Arena.
Utah State (10-6, 1-2 Mountain West) took a lead 62-60 with 4:35 left in the game, the first lead for the Aggies since an early 10-8 advantage.
CSU (12-1, 2-1 MW) had been sitting in a comfortable but close lead (bouncing between five and nine points) most of the second half before Utah State started surging.
