FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State men’s basketball program released its non-conference schedule for the 2013-14 basketball season on Tuesday afternoon. CSU’s early-season slate features 12 home games, including key matchups against in-state rivals Colorado, Northern Colorado and Denver, and a nationally televised road game at Gonzaga as part of ESPN’s annual 24-hour Hoops Marathon.
The Rams open the season with an exhibition matchup against the Regis Rangers (Nov. 2) before hosting their regular-season opener against CU-Colorado Springs on Friday, Nov. 8.
Then it is off to Spokane, Wash., for a nationally televised matchup on ESPNU – one of just two road games on the Rams’ non-conference schedule – against 2013 NCAA Tournament No. 1-seed Gonzaga at the Bulldogs’ McCarthey Athletic Center.
After a weekend matchup at Moby Arena against Weber State (Nov. 16), Eustachy leads the Rams on the road against long-time friend Tim Floyd and the UTEP Miners. CSU has captured two straight victories over UTEP on the hardwood in as many years.
The Rams host the Colorado State Challenge, Nov. 22-30, to tip off a stretch of nine consecutive home games to close out non-conference action. The Colorado State Challenge will include games against Northern Colorado (Nov. 22), Prairie View A&M (Nov. 25), Bethune-Cookman (Nov. 27) and WAC power New Mexico State (Nov. 30).
December features a pair of annual in-state rivalry games against the Colorado Buffaloes and the Denver Pioneers. The Rams and Buffs reignite their series on Tuesday, Dec. 3, while the Pioneers visit Moby Arena on Wednesday, Dec. 11. The matchups against CU and DU bookend a week that also features a tilt against Southwestern Oklahoma State (Dec. 7).
Following a week away from the court for finals, the Rams host the UIC Flames (Dec. 23) and the Lamar Cardinals (Dec. 28) in their final tune-ups before Mountain West action.
Tip times and broadcast information, with the exception of the Rams’ matchup at Gonzaga (7 p.m. MT on ESPNU), are to be announced. The Mountain West Conference schedule is expected to be released in late August or early September.
