FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Wes Eikmeier scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half to lead Colorado State past cold-shooting Air Force 79-40 Wednesday night.
Colton Iverson added 15 points and seven rebounds for Colorado State (14-3, 1-1 Mountain West). Pierce Hornung had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Rams, who extended their home winning streak to a school-record 23 games.
Colorado State had a commanding 40-19 rebounding edge. The Rams have outrebounded every opponent this season.
