Colorado Bounces Back in Big Way
Colorado lost against Florida State two games ago, but they were able to bounce back in a big way in the last game. Colorado faced off against Iona and the offense scored 85 points on the way to the victory. Tristan da Silva had a strong game putting up 17 points, three rebounds, and two assists. On the season Colorado is averaging 82.7 points while their defense is giving up 67.2 points per game. The offense is ranked 53rd and they are going to need to run up the score here early. KJ Simpson is averaging 18.3 points while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 36 percent from behind the three point line.
Colorado State Looks to Pick Up Another Impressive Win
Colorado State is coming off an impressive win and they are going to look to pick up another big one here. Colorado State faced off against Creighton, and they gave up only 48 points on the way to the 21 point victory. Isaiah Stevens had another big game putting up 20 points, seven assists, and six rebounds. Colorado State on the season is averaging 84.7 points while their defense is giving up 66.2 points per game. The offense is ranked 35th and they are going to need the offense to be good again here.
Shane’s Free Pick
What Colorado State’s defense did in the last game against Creighton opened up a lot of eyes and I believe they are going to find a ton of success again here. Colorado State gave up only 48 points and although Creighton might score a few more points than that here, they aren’t going to have a great offensive game, and that will be the difference. Back Colorado State to pick up another big win and they can cover the spread.
