FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Andy Ogide scored 17 points as Colorado State avenged an earlier season loss to New Mexico with a 68-62 victory Saturday night.

Greg Smith added 14 and Adam Nigon had 13 for Colorado State (17-7, 7-3 Mountain West). The Rams, winners of four of their last five, lost 68-61 to the Lobos on Jan. 12 in Albuquerque and had lost eight straight to New Mexico.
