The Breakdown:

With a win against Missouri on Thursday, CSU looks to continue their momentum when they face the Cards on Saturday. The Rams are lead by senior center Colton Iverson, who averages 14.4 points per game and 9.9 rebounds per game. While Iverson leads the team in those statistics, 4/5 starters for Head Coach Larry Eustachy’s average over 10 points a game. However, the stat that jumps out for the Rams lies within the rebounding category. Colorado State is 4th in the nation in boards per game, grabbing, on average, 40.4 rebounds a game. This being said, the CSU attack will be with their big men. The Rams lack in depth on the bench, so expect the starting 5 to gain a lot of minutes. Look for a lot of action in the paint against Louisville.
