CSU hosting four bonus home games in NIT

November 18, 2011

The Rams will face Texas-San Antonio on Monday and Manhattan on Tuesday at Moby Arena as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off.

Leading scorer Wes Eikmeier and the Rams take on Texas-San Antonio on Monday night at Moby Arena.The CSU men’s basketball team has earned two bonus home games for its fans, starting Monday night with a 7:30 game against Texas-San Antonio at Moby Arena.

The CSU-UTSA game is part of a four-game package to be played Monday and Tuesday at Moby as part of the NIT Season Tip-Off. The Rams play Manhattan at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. CSU has never played UTSA or Manhattan.

Other games on the slate include Fresno State-Manhattan (5 p.m. Monday) and Fresno State-UTSA (5 p.m. Tuesday).

CSU earned the right to host the four-pack of games by beating SMU last week in the first round of the NIT Season Tip-Off. The Rams had a chance to earn a trip to New York City for the semifinals but fell short against host Stanford. The games tonight and Tuesday are part of the NIT’s 16-team consolation round.
