COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Colorado State women’s basketball squad looks to improve in conference play during the 2013-14 season. Now in his second year, Head Coach Ryun Williams will heavily rely on the team’s six returning letterwinners as well as eight newcomers. The Rams will face a difficult league slate, including four teams that went to the postseason last year.
Colorado State opens up conference play on Jan. 2 at San Diego State. The regular-season champions advanced to the second round of the WNIT during the 2012-13 campaign.
For the team’s conference home opener, the Rams will host New Mexico on Jan. 5. The Lobos finished last season ranked fourth in the conference.
San José State, one of two new teams in the Mountain West this year, will travel to Moby Arena to face CSU on Jan. 8. The Spartans closed out 2012-13 with an 11-19 record, finishing seventh in the WAC.
Next, Colorado State will travel to Fresno State, the 2012-13 Mountain West tournament champions, on Jan. 11. Fresno State was the lone team in the MW to advance to the NCAA tournament last season, falling to Final Four team, California.
Four days later on Jan. 15, the Rams will host the other newest member of the MW, Utah State. The Aggies, also hailing from the WAC, finished second in their conference with an 18-13 record and went to the first round of the WBI tournament last season.
Colorado State will then host Nevada on Jan. 29 for the only time this regular season. The Wolf Pack finished ninth in the conference last year.
February features the second game at home against SDSU on Feb. 1. Then on Feb. 5, the Rams will take on UNLV in Las Vegas, who finished fifth in the MW standings last season.
Air Force Academy, ranked eighth in the MW last year, will head to Moby Arena on Feb. 8. Then the Rams will travel to Logan, Utah, to take on the Utah State on Feb. 12. Three days later, Colorado State will host Fresno State, who finished second in regular-season standings, on Feb. 15.
The Rams will make the trek to seventh-ranked Boise State for their first-and-only meeting of the regular season on Feb. 19.
After suffering a tough loss to the Wyoming Cowgirls at the MW tournament, the Rams will be ready for a rematch as they head up to Laramie on Feb. 22. The Cowgirls went to the WNIT last season, falling to Northern Colorado in the first round.
On Feb. 26, Colorado State will take on the UNLV Rebels at home, before the Rams will meet with SJSU for the second time in San Jose, Calif., on March 4.
The Rams will host Wyoming in the second installment of the Border War to close out the regular-season slate on March 7.
The 2014 Reese’s Mountain West tournament will take place in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center on March 10-15.
