    DENVER -- Travis Franklin scored 22 points, Andy Ogide had 15 and Colorado State shook off a slow start to beat Denver 77-66 on Thursday night.

    The Rams (2-0) trailed by nine early but rallied to take a 38-34 lead at halftime. They opened the second half on a 10-4 run to push the lead to 48-38 with 14:50 left.

    Colorado State finished shooting 58.7 percent.

    Brian Stafford led the Pioneers (0-4) with 26 points and Chase Hallam had 13.
