LAS VEGAS -- Colorado State's Pierce Hornung had 18 points and 10 rebounds, leading four players in double figures, as the Rams 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.

Virginia Tech senior guard Erick Green finished with 26 points, giving him at least 20 points in all 12 of the Hokies' games this season. Junior forward Jarell Eddie was the only other Virginia Tech player in double figures, finishing with 10 points.

The Hokies shot just 35.8 percent from the floor, 6-of-21 in three-point shots.
