At 3-0 to start their season, everything looks great for Niko Medved’s Colorado State Rams men’s basketball team.

Nico Carvacho is averaging a double-double, the Rams are getting phenomenal guard play out of Anthony Masinton-Bonner, Kendle Moore and J.D. Paige and when they’re at their best, the Rams share the ball very well.

We look at CSU’s first road trip of the season, a three-games-in-three-days tournament out in Florida which tips off Monday at 3 p.m. MST. It’s a preview looking at exactly what the green and gold will have to do to win the entire tournament.

First up, Colorado State faces 1-2 Louisiana today at 3 p.m. Jakeenan Gant is the star for the Ragin’ Cajuns, and he’ll likely matchup with Carvacho. That is, unless Louisiana goes big, which may be difficult for the guard-heavy Rams to compete with. If CSU wins today, they’ll play at 5:30 p.m. MST Tuesday against the winner of Toledo and Florida Gulf Coast; we guess it’ll be FGCU and break down that matchup as well.

Also included in the podcast: We start off with the insane finish to the football game on Saturday. Has there ever been a crazier ending? We get quotes from Collin Hill and Mike Bobo before moving on from that one to the final game of the year.

And, we also look at “Next Level Rams” with Michael Gallup’s family currently going through a tragedy. Our thoughts are with Gallup as his brother passed away this weekend. That, and more, in the latest CSU Rams Cast.
