COLORADO ST 88, VIRGINIA TECH 52
By W.G. RAMIREZ
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Pierce Hornung had 18 points and 10 rebounds,
leading four players in double figures, as Colorado State
crushed Virginia Tech 88-52 in the Las Vegas Classic
championship game Sunday night.
The Rams, after a methodical and balanced approach in a first
half that gave them a 33-27 lead at halftime, opened the second
half on a 12-2 run and went on to outscore the Hokies 55-25.
Dorian Green also scored 18 points for the Rams (10-2), while
Greg Smith had 17 and Colton Iverson added 15.
Playing in front of a sparse crowd at the Orleans Arena, the
Rams made a statement in winning the title in front of a
nationally televised audience. Facing arguably its toughest test
of the season, the Mountain West's Colorado State showed no
signs of intimidation against the ACC's Hokies (9-3), in the
first-ever meeting between the two programs.
