Career stats and this year’s CSU team

February 20, 2013

So I started to compile stuff regarding the careers of our 5 seniors and how they compare historically to CSU players in years past.

Of course we all know that Dorian Green has started every game in his CSU career and that streak has reached 121 games. And he has been moving steadily up the career scoring, assist, games played, and other marks. As has Pierce Hornung in rebounds and steals. As have Greg Smith and Wes Eikmeier in career scoring or games played.

And then there’s the curious case of Colton Iverson, who has actually played more NCAA D-1 basketball games than anyone on the roster.

But then it struck me that this year’s team isn’t about the pursuit of individual records. So rather than document where one of the guys stands right now, I thought I’d focus on the one thing that matters to these guys.

Winning.

In the four years that Dorian Green, Pierce Hornung, and Greg Smith (three for Wes Eikmeier, 1 for Colton Iverson) have laced up their Ram sneakers, Colorado State has won 76 games to date. The all-time school record over 4 consecutive years is 81.

Which means with 6 games left in the season, this crop of seniors could possibly break the all-time record on senior night against Nevada.

A tall task for sure with 6 very difficult MWC games left on the docket.

But with six regular season games, as many as three MWC tournament games, and as many as 6 NCAA Tournament games left, this group of players has a chance to blow right by 81 and stamp their collective mark as the greatest core of players to ever don Ram and Aggie uniforms.

We have been blessed!

    I tweeted something to Cowerd last night along the same lines as this. No stars on this team. Just a great team. I even offered to fly him out for the weekend. Great article Cracker.

      I’ll do an individual stat summary right around the time our guys play Nevada on Senior Night. The accomplishments of this group are incredible! Yet they remain so focused on getting better as a team. Wes Eikmeier passed 1000 points in his career recently and not a word mentioned.
