LAS VEGAS (AP) — Pierce Hornung had 18 points and 10 rebounds, leading four players in double figures, as Colorado State crushed Virginia Tech 88-52 in the Las Vegas Classic championship game Sunday night.

The Rams, after a methodical and balanced approach in a first half that gave them a 33-27 lead at halftime, opened the second half on a 12-2 run and went on to outscore the Hokies 55-25.

Dorian Green also scored 18 points for the Rams (10-2), while Greg Smith had 17 and Colton Iverson added 15.

Playing in front of a sparse crowd at the Orleans Arena, the Rams made a statement in winning the title in front of a nationally televised audience. Facing arguably its toughest test of the season, the Mountain West's Colorado State showed no signs of intimidation against the ACC's Hokies (9-3), in the first-ever meeting between the two programs.
