FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Wes Eikmeier scored 19 points and Will Bell added 17, helping Colorado State beat No. 13 San Diego State 77-60 on Saturday for its first home win over a ranked team in more than eight years.
The Rams (14-6, 3-2 Mountain West) frustrated the fatigued Aztecs (18-3, 4-1) all afternoon, limiting them to 3-of-21 shooting from 3-point range.
It was the first time Colorado State beat a Top 25 team at Moby Arena since knocking off Purdue 71-69 on Dec. 30, 2003. Fans were eager to join the celebration as the student section rushed onto the floor, some waving cardboard cutouts of Colorado State coach Tim Miles.
Jamaal Franklin had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Aztecs, who had their 11-game winning streak snapped. Chase Tapley, the conference's leading scorer, was held to 10 points. He was averaging 16.4.
