we were up, we got too relaxed."Nevada (11 11, 2 6 MWC), which led by as many as 12 points in the first half, was crushed on the boards by the NCAA's best rebounding team. Colorado State had a 46 30 edge on the boards and grabbed 20 offensive rebounds, none bigger than Colton Iverson's rebound late in the game.With the teams tied at 67, Iverson, the Rams' 6 foot 10 center, grabbed a missed 3 pointer by Dorian Green and put in the go ahead layup for a two point lead with 40.9 seconds left.

Not in our house!"That 3 pointer Story's sixth out of Womens Converse All Star Ox seven he made Wednesday night capped a 10 0 Wolf Pack run and appeared to give Nevada the momentum it needed to finally get a big Mountain West win.But just as has happened so many times this season, the Wolf Pack crumbled down the stretch because of poor shot selection, ill time turnovers, missed layups and defensive breakdowns.The result was a 73 69 loss to Colorado State before an announced crowd of 6,226 fans, which was likely half that size and was eerily quiet as Nevada lost its seventh game in nine tries."We got too comfortable," said Story, who finished with a game high 31 Converse For Men All Star
was held in check with 11 points on 3 of 10 shooting. "This one definitely hurts. Knowing that we're in the ball game and right there and one possession hurts us. It definitely takes its toll."After Colorado State (19 4, 6 2) went ahead by two, the Wolf Pack took a timeout and coach David Carter designed a play to get Deonte Burton the ball at the free throw elbow.

If Burton can't get over the top (against his defender), then call a timeout,'" Carter said. "But he still threw the pass. You can't do that. You're a junior.

"We're getting to the point where every possession is very important. We were up 62 57 and the next thing you know we're down 63 62. Bad three. Missed layup. Turnover. In that order. You can't do that against great teams."Colorado State played most of the game without the reigning MWC player of the week, Pierce Hornung, who lasted three minutes before sitting the rest of the game with the flu.

"Especially for me because I don't have many home games left. You want to go out on a high note and right now we have a lot of losses and it's not a good taste in your mouth so we just have to go back to the drawing board and fix the little things."COLORADO STATE 73, NEVADA 69KEY STAT: 20 Colorado State had 20 offensive rebounds and beat Nevada 46 30 on the boards.KEY PLAY: With the game tied at 67, Colorado State's Colton Iverson grabbed an offensive rebound and put in the layup to give the Rams a two point lead with 40.9 seconds left.KEY TO THE GAME: The Rams dominated the post (a 36 22 edge in points in the paint) and second chance opportunities (20 9 edge) en route to the nip and tuck victory.
