RENO, Nev. -- The Colorado State men's basketball team fell short in winning the Mountain West Conference regular-season title on Saturday, falling to Nevada, 85-72.

The teams entered the regular-season finale tied for first place, but the Rams (21-10, 13-5 Mountain West) fell apart in the second half, allowing Nevada to go on a 20-3 run.

Gian Clavell led the Rams with 33 points.

The Rams tied a school record with 13 conference wins. The Mountain West tournament begins Wednesday in Las Vegas.

CSU will be the No. 2 seed and will play the winner of the Wyoming-Air Force game on Thursday.

The Rams almost certainly need to win the tournament to get into the NCAA Tournament, which begins March 14.
