Colorado State 71 – Air Force 47 (Women)

January 21, 2016

I needed a laugher.  As a Ram fan, it had been a long 24 hours after hearing about the tragedy that befell Emmanuel Omogbo.

Prior to the game there was a moment of silence for Emmanuel. It was a beautiful moment.

After the game, I was on the floor and ran into starting forward Emelie Hesseldal.  She was more interested in how the boys were playing in Colorado Springs and we followed on Twitter together (until my phone ran out of juice).

The Lady Rams and their fans were in Moby but their collective heart was with an extraordinary young man who somehow summoned enough courage to play a game.

Keyorra Wharry scored 19 points and Sofie Trygerdsson came off the bench to score a career-high 15. Coach Ryun Williams substituted liberally throughout the entire game. The result was what you would expect when the top team in the conference plays the bottom team

The Rams moved to 16-1, 6-0 and now get a little break before heading into the toughest stretch of their schedule.  They have positioned themselves well to win another Mountain West regular season championship.  The run-in promises to be pretty darn fun.
