Welcome back, basketball. We’ve missed you.

Your Colorado State Rams played their first game of the season last Saturday, an exhibition contest against CSU-Pueblo, which told us a lot about the team, both on and off the court.

On the court, they’re going to run a lot with the transition offense, they utilized good effort on defense and are actually using set plays on offense, too.

Off the court, we learned Deion James will redshirt this season and that Kris Martin has been suspended for the first five games of the season. So, don’t expect to see them when your Rams tip off the regular season on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. MST against Colorado Christian.

In this season preview podcast, we break down how Niko Medved and his staff have changed the culture, and what that means to the players. We hear from Medved on a lot of things, including how many players will be in his rotation as well as the changes to the offensive and defensive philosophies for the Rams this year.

We also hear from Anthony Masinton-Bonner on the changes to the transition offense as well as what the defensive changes will mean this year, and Nico Carvacho talks about how set plays help his offense, too.

Then, Eddie Herz joins the podcast to discuss key players and expectations of this team before the season tips off on Wednesday. So much information on your Rams you won’t find anywhere else. Thanks for tuning into the new CSU RamsCast.
