FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Don't forget your white Saturday night!
New coach Larry Eustachy and his Rams' men's basketball team faces nationally-ranked UNLV Saturday at 5 p.m. in Moby Arena in the school's annual "White Out" basketball game as part of Coaches vs. Cancer weekend.
Coaches vs. Cancer is a partnership program between the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society.
For this week's game against the Runnin' Rebels, Rams fans are encouraged to wear white for the game, which will be televised live nationally by NBC Sports Network, and begins at 5 p.m. in Moby Arena.
Also playing a key role in Saturday's game events is RamStrength, the local nonprofit organization which provides financial support, as well as other forms of support, for families in the midst of cancer treatment.
RamStrength will be involved in pregame activities, and will have information available on the concourse areas of Moby Arena. More information regarding RamStrength's community contributions can be found at www.ramstrength.org.
Colorado State enters the game with a 14-3 overall record, and a 1-1 mark in Mountain West play, following a narrow loss last week at conference favorite San Diego State, and a blowout win over in-state rival Air Force on Wednesday night.
The Rams' win over Air Force was the program's school-record 23rd straight victory at Moby Arena. The streak ranks as the fourth longest active home court win streak in the nation.
UNLV, ranked No. 23 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, enters Satuday's game with a 15-3 record, and a 2-1 conference mark. The Runnin' Rebels have conference wins vs. Air Force (76-71, OT) and at San Diego State (82-75), following a 65-60 road loss against New Mexico to open the MW season.
