Fort Collins, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Jon Octeus scored 18 points as the Colorado State Rams claimed a 74-61 win over the Flames of Illinois-Chicago in non-conference play at Moby Arena.

J.J. Avila and Daniel Bejarano both accounted for 10 points and five assists, the former clearing eight rebounds and the latter collecting a game-high 15 boards for the Rams (8-4) as they won for the second time in the last three outings.

The Flames (5-8), losers of two straight, were led by Kelsey Barlow who tallied a game-high 20 points on 9-of-18 shooting from the floor, but no one else managed to produce more than eight points for UIC in the setback.
