For Colorado State, everything is great as of late.
The Rams went 2-0 last week, knocking off Mountain West foes Air Force and No. 23 UNLV to improve to 15-3 on the season. CSU played so well last Wednesday, they set two school records against the Falcons, and their win over ranked UNLV has the Rams receiving 16 votes from the coaches and seven from the AP.
No doubt about it, Colorado State's 66-61 nail-biter of a victory Saturday night sits as their signature win of the season, and a major reason why they were able to triumph was the stellar play of point guard Dorian Green.
Green lit it up from outside, hitting his first three straight three-pointers to give the green and gold an early lead. He also scored inside and from the charity stripe, putting up a career-high 24 points in the game. But it was much more than his superb shooting; the senior did everything the team needed, hitting clutch free throws, dropping five dimes and grabbing five rebounds as well.
Simply stated, when the team needed someone to step up, Green was there to answer the call.
That wasn't all though, when his shot wasn't falling against Air Force, he made sure to facilitate teammates with seven assists while snagging three rebounds.
His averages of 14.5 points, six assists and four rebounds were enough to earn the Lawrence, Kansas native MWC Player of the Week for the first time in his college career.
It's also the fourth time a Rams' player has enjoyed the award, with Colton Iverson winning twice and Pierce Hornung earning it as well, meaning someone from Colorado State has won in each of the season's three months.
