CCU Athletics
Cougars Run Away with Sixth Straight Win
CCU faced off with Adams State on Saturday night and dominated their way to another conference victory winning by a final score of 80-69. It was a sloppy game for both teams as they combined for 60 turnovers, but a solid all-around team effort on the offensive side of the ball gave Colorado Christian everything they needed for the double digit victory.
