Despite C.J. Wilcox's 28 points, the Washington Huskies fell 73-55 to the Colorado State Rams at Alaska Airlines Arena on Saturday, putting the Huskies at 2-3 on the season while the Rams remain undefeated at 4-0.
The Huskies players will say they let this game get away, as the team entered halftime with a lead before being picked apart defensively, allowing the Rams to score 45 points in the second half.
It was the second-chance attempts that led to the undoing of Washington, as the Huskies found themselves outrebounded 40-19. In fact, the Rams had the same number of offensive rebounds (19) as the Huskies had total rebounds.
In addition to the rebounding efforts, the Rams earned the win with a strong display of teamwork. Four different players scored in double-digits and two had 12 rebounds, including Colton Iverson, who registered 13 points and 12 rebounds.
Washington will get five days of rest before hosting the visiting Saint Louis Billikens on Nov. 29.
