CSU basketball holds off Boise State to sweep Mountain West regular-season champions

The Rams won a dramatic 71-68 game with a series of late twists and turns Saturday night.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — There’s a reason these are the two best teams in the conference.

For the second time this season Boise State and Colorado State’s men’s basketball teams played thrilling, down-to-the-wire games.

CSU again grabbed the win, this one to sweep the regular season series over the newly-crowned Mountain West regular season champions.

CSU won a dramatic 71-68 game with a series of late twists and turns.

The teams traded buckets back and forth late before James Moors scored on a late putback to put CSU ahead and the Rams sealed it with free throws and by forcing a Marcus Shaver Jr. miss of a would-be tying 3-pointer.

David Roddy starred, scoring 23 points. Moore had 19 and was put on the shoulders of fans who rushed the court after the game.
