TOLEDO, Ohio – It was another close game down to the final minute at Savage Arena Sunday. Toledo was the team to pull away in the end as the Rams lost 58-51. 

Colorado State falls to 1-7 on the year, while the 2011 WNIT champion Toledo Rockets improve to 5-2 on the season and 46-5 at home. 

Colorado State quickly got into turnover trouble early in the contest, committing six in the first 5 minutes of play and 16 through the end of the first half. The Rams kept the score close, but the Rockets ultimately took advantage of CSU’s mistakes, scoring 23 points off the team’s giveaways. Three starters had five turnovers or more adding to the team’s 27 total.

“I was disappointed we lost and we had the 27 turnovers, but I was really proud of the team today,” said Head Coach Kristen Holt. “I know we got better today. I think our kids really responded.”

Sophomore Sam Martin was the team’s leading scorer with 21, followed by Kim Mestdagh who also tallied double figures with 14. It was Martin’s third time in four game she registered 20 or more points.

Redshirt freshman Mandy Makeever left the game at halftime with a shoulder injury and did not return to the contest. LaDeyah Forte played the point guard position for the remainder of the game with eight points and four assists.

The Rockets top scorer, Courtney Ingersoll, who averages 13.2 points per game, was held scoreless through the first half, but improved in the second scoring 10 points on the afternoon.

CSU has played a difficult schedule to begin 2011-12. As of 1 p.m. MT Sunday, seven out of eight of the Rams opponents so far this season have a winning record. Tulsa, the Rams lone win this season is the only team below .500. Colorado State now has four losses with less than a seven-point differential.


 

 

CSU will head home for two matchups in Moby before the holidays. The Rams first host North Dakota Thursday at 7 p.m. MT, followed by Maryville on Dec. 11 at 1 p.m.
