The Colorado State Men’s’ Basketball team wrapped up one of their best seasons in recent year, losing on a last second layup to Louisiana Tech in the NIT consolation game.
They led for most of the game and had pushed themselves into an 11=point lead with just over 8 minutes to play before a furious rally left them on the south side of the scoreboard.
Isaiah Stevens led the way once again with 18 points and 7 assists. Dischon Thomas came off the bench to deliver 15 along with 6 rebounds. Kendle Moore had 19. And David Roddy, the victim of a nasty elbow that forced him to miss important minutes down the stretch, had 9 along with 9 rebounds.
With the loss, the Rams concluded the season at 20-8. It was a season full of memories and hope as the Rams won a record 14 conference games with a senior-less team. A season with a near miss of an NCAA Tournament At-Large bid. But t was also a season that concluded with 4 losses in their last 8 games, with some holes exposed that will need to be corrected for them to reach their lofty goals and fulfill expectations in the coming season.
