Colorado State Rams Basketball History
Colorado State has had a basketball team since 1901 when the
university was known as Colorado Agricultural College, making the school's basketball program one of the oldest in the country.
The Rams joined the Mountain West Conference in 1999 as a charter member of the conference which is rapidly becoming one of
the best in all of college basketball. Colorado State won the conference regular season title twice, in 1989 and 1990 while
they were members of the WAC. They have won one Mountain West Conference tournament title in 2003 and will be looking to make
a return to dominance in the conference during the 2014-2015 season.
There's nothing like
being in the stands when the game is on the line, so ditch the couch, brush off the potato chips and get ready to see a game
you won't soon forget. College basketball has plenty of great games on the schedule each and every season, from plenty of
top-tier regular season battles to Tournament clashes that you'll have to see first-hand to believe. These are some of the
best amateur athletes in the entire world, though that's something that you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate.
Will you be there when your favorite player pulls up for a game-winning three that will have everyone jumping out of their
seat in unison? There is nothing quite like being there with thousands of your fellow fans as the Rams look to pile up the
wins and give their fans another memorable season, though that's not something that you're going to figure out sitting at
home wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like.
Colorado State Rams Basketball Conference
recent years the Mountain West Conference has emerged as a true national powerhouse. There are now eleven members of the Mountain
West Conference: San Diego State, UNLV, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Nevada, Fresno State, Wyoming,
Utah State, and San Jose State. Previous members have included TCU, Utah, and BYU. Of the current members, Utah State leads
the way with twenty NCAA Tournament appearances. However, so far all of their appearances have come before joining the Mountain
West. UNLV and Wyoming, two charter members of the Mountain West, are next in line with 19 and 14 respectively. UNLV and Wyoming
are also the only two members of the conference to win a National Championship, with UNLV winning in 1990 and Wyoming winning
all the way back in 1943. Lately it has been San Diego State, New Mexico, and UNLV who have dominated the conference on the
basketball court with SDSU tearing up the national rankings during the 2013-2014 season.
State Rams have participated in the NCAA Tournament ten times, most recently in 2013, and have reached the Sweet Sixteen twice.
The Rams have also been in the NIT seven times with their highest finish being third place in 1988.
