FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State basketball fans who enjoyed the electric atmosphere inside Moby Arena during Wednesday night’s thrilling victory over San Diego State will be able to relive the experience at the next Rams’ home game. Provided they’ve already secured a ticket.
The 24th-ranked Rams (20-4, 7-2 MW) will play in front of their third straight sellout crowd – a first in the 47-year history of Moby Arena – at the team’s next home contest, Feb. 23 vs. No. 19/18 New Mexico (21-4, 8-2 MW), a game which will have conference championship implications for the two programs currently second and first, respectively, in the league standings.
Colorado State officials announced Friday morning that public tickets for the marquee Mountain West battle have sold out and that only free student tickets, which can be picked up beginning Wednesday at 8 a.m. at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office, remain.
Moby Arena has become one of the most formidable home-court advantages in the nation, as the Rams have captured 27 straight wins in the building, good enough for the third-longest active streak in the nation.
And Rams’ head coach Larry Eustachy has acknowledged the role that the Moby Arena crowd has played in that role.
“Hats off to the fans,” said Eustachy after the Rams’ win over the Aztecs. “We don’t get that thing done at the end (without them). It’s the difference maker. We don’t win that game without the fans.”
The home of the Rams since Jan. 27, 1966, next week’s contest will mark the 24th capacity crowd in the building’s history. Sellouts in their two most recent home games – victories over Wyoming and SDSU – mark just the second time in arena history that the team has played in front of a full house in back-to-back games, and the team has never hosted three sellouts in a single season at the venue.
Single-game tickets to the Rams’ final two home games, Feb. 27 vs. Fresno State and March 9 vs. Nevada, still remain. Tickets can be purchased in person at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office, by calling 1-800-491-RAMS, or online at CSURams.com.
