For Colorado State Rams basketball, a tough season has gotten a little ugly as of late.

The Rams have lost five straight games, which is the longest streak of losing in eight years, they’re without their two best starters due to injury and it was found out on Wednesday by Justin Michael that Larry Eustachy’s conduct is under investigation once again. We heard about the “culture of fear,” as it was described, back in 2013, when it came out last year. Despite all the negative press, the Rams players rallied around their coach then.

That seemed to be happening again Wednesday night as the shorthanded men’s basketball team put up a great fight and led the better Wyoming Cowboys for much of the game, only to fall apart at the end of both halves and end up losing in double overtime, 91-86.

We look at the information surrounding this “climate assessment” as Joe Parker said in a release on Wednesday and what it means for CSU men’s basketball present and future.

All that is happening, while the players — Anthony Bonner and Deion James among others — have Eustachy’s back and they all must prepare for another game tomorrow against the best in the Mountain West in Nevada.

We give you three things to look for in that game, including a great matchup possibility of forwards in Nico Carvacho versus Jordan Caroline.

Then, we look at some recruiting news, some coaching salaries from the football team and how CBS Sports says Michael Gallup is a first-round sleeper.
