CSU releases 2016-17 men’s basketball schedule

The 2016-17 men’s basketball full schedule was released Thursday afternoon, including ten non-conference games at home, five matchups against fellow in-state schools and is highlighted by games against three 2016 NCAA tournament teams.

“This is one of the toughest non-conference schedules Colorado State has had in a long time,” Eustachy said in the release. “It will be a great test for us and great for our fans to have some of these teams come to our state to play.”


The Rams will open the 2016-17 season against New Mexico State University Nov. 13, followed by a Nov. 16 home game against Fort Lewis.

CSU will hit the road for the first time Nov. 20, when the team makes the trip to Palo Alto, CA. for a matchup with Stanford. Following the matchup with the Cardinals, CSU will play three home games, before heading to Boulder Nov. 30 for an early-winter meeting with the University of Colorado.

CSU will play its contest in the Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge at home on Dec. 3, hosting a Wichita State. The Shockers have made NCAA tournament appearances in five consecutive seasons.

Colorado State will host Northern Colorado Dec. 10. Leading into finals week for the Rams, is a rematch with Kansas State at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Dec. 17. Loyola Marymount wraps up the home non-conference portion on Dec. 19. The final game before Mountain West play takes placeat Long Beach State on Dec. 22.

Game times will be announced in mid-September as non-conference and MW television schedules are finalized.
