FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Wes Eikmeier scored 18 points for Colorado State, and a defensive adjustment shut down Fresno State's Kevin Olekaibe in the second half of the Rams' 74-67 victory on Wednesday night.
The Rams were coming off two straight losses that knocked them out of the Top 25.
Olekaibe led Fresno State (9-18, 3-11) with 18 points on 6-for-6 shooting from 3-point range. The Rams put Jon Octeus and Daniel Bejarano on Olekaibe to start the second half and held him to just an early 3-pointer.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
