Green, making his unofficial debut in a Rams uniform, was perfect from the free-throw line, converting all four attempts, while shooting 3-of-6 from three-point range.
“I kind of just let the game come to me,” Green said. “I got some good looks today that went in.”
Ogide, last year’s leading scorer, used 7-of-9 shooting to lead the Rams on offense. The forward also posted seven rebounds.
Junior Travis Franklin’s eight boards led the team.
On offense, the Rams shot 54 percent from the floor, including an impressive 61 percent in the second half.
Colorado State held Regis without a field goal for the first 4 minutes, 3 seconds, jumping out to an early lead, but Regis fired back with a Jordan Martinez-Doublin three-pointer to give the Rangers a 9-8 lead with 13:59 to play in the half. Andy Ogide’s jumper put the Rams on top 12-11, however, and the team never looked back, leading the rest of the game.
A 10-2 Rams run minutes later, capped by back-to-back three-point makes by Green, extended the Rams’ lead to nine. Colorado State entered the locker room at halftime with a 38-28 lead.
Colorado State Head Coach Tim Miles had great respect for his counterpart, Regis’ Lonnie Porter, entering the contest.
“If you’re going to play a Lonnie Porter team, they’re going to stay aggressive and that’s what I love about Porter,” Miles said. “Whether it be physicality or aggressiveness, that’s where they throw it down our throats.”
A Franklin dunk, fed from freshman Pierce Hornung, started a 10-0 Rams run midway through the second half to push their lead to their largest of the night at 17.
Colorado State got point production from nine players, including four players (Ogide, Green, Franklin and Adam Nigon) in double figures.
“I thought that those two freshmen did a nice job,” Miles said. “I thought Dorian Green looks like a player. Pierce Hornung does two things that I absolutely love in a basketball player: He comes up with loose basketballs and he makes layups.”
With the win, Colorado State remains a perfect 5-0 in exhibition play under Miles. The Rams will wrap up their exhibition slate Saturday at 5 p.m. when they play host to Western State.
