Colorado State’s Road to the Sweet 16


That’s the word to describe this Colorado State men’s basketball team after securing a victory in the Paradise Jam championship game against the Huskies of Northeastern on Monday night.

Down 16 points at halftime, CSU needed a perfect second half to come out champions in the Virgin Islands.

And that’s exactly what happened.

Down 20 points with with just over 17 minutes left to play, the Rams went on a ridiculous 36-8 run over the next 14:08 and ended up winning the game by 10 points, 71 - 61.

I mean look at this ridiculous Win Probability chart:

It was a remarkable comeback for Colorado State, who with this win, became just the 4th Mountain West team (BYU 2002/03, UNM 2012/13, and Nevada 2019/20) to win the Paradise Jam.
