EUGENE, Ore. – Junior forward Andy Ogide and freshman guard Dorian Green tallied 17 and 12 points, respectively, en route to all-tournament honors, but it was not enough to overcome tournament MVP Tajuan Porter and the host Oregon Ducks Sunday in the championship game of the BTI Tip-off tournament. 

Ogide scored 15 of his team-leading 17 points in the first half, and the Rams were able to control the tempo for a majority of the contest, to hang with the Ducks in front of their home crowd of 6,769 at McArthur Court.  However, a 23-point effort from Porter lifted Oregon past CSU, 68-55.   

The Rams, went into the locker room trailing by a single-digit margin, 36-27, thanks to Ogide’s first-half outburst.  However, the Ducks were able to neutralize the CSU post player in the second half, prompting Green, and junior forwards Andre McFarland and Travis Franklin, to step up and keep the Rams in the contest in the second half. 

McFarland tallied all eight of his points, while Franklin tallied half of his eight, in the second half.  Franklin, who led the Rams on the boards, tallied five of his eight rebounds, including four offensive rebounds, in the game’s final stanza.  Franklin also finished with a team-leading two blocks.  Green added four rebounds and a block, and McFarland added four rebounds.

In addition to Porter’s 23, LeKendric Longmire and Teondre Williams added 11 points each, while senior forward Joevan Catron added 10 points and a game-high nine rebounds for the Ducks. 

Colorado State (2-1), will now turn its attention to the Indiana State Sycamores, its matchup in the inaugural Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge. Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. MT from Terre Haute, Ind., on Friday.
