CSU’s season ends with NIT loss to Cal State Bakersfield

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The Colorado State men’s basketball team’s post season is over after the Rams fell to Cal State Bakersfield, 81-63, late Monday night in the second round of the NIT.

The Rams struggled out of the gate, down 13-2 to start the game and down 20 at the half. It was the same story in the second half as sloppy and sluggish play plagued CSU all night. The Rams shot just 34 percent from the field.

Glan Clavell finished with 21 points and eight rebounds. Prentiss Nixon posted 15 points.

The Rams finished 24-12 and second in the Mountain West Conference.
