What you need to know about Colorado State
Colorado State put another one in the win column last Thursday to keep its perfect season alive. The Rams were the clear victor by a 69-48 margin over the then-No. 8 Creighton Bluejays. Isaiah Stevens was the offensive standout as he scored 20 points along with recording seven assists and six rebounds.
Overall, it’s been a very fast start for a program looking to rebound from last year’s 15-18 campaign. CSU made the 2022 NCAA Tournament and the Rams look to have a chance to return this year thanks largely to Stevens and forward Joel Scott, who is second on the team in scoring (14.5 ppg) and leads the team in rebounding (6.8 rpg)
