FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — J.J. Avila shot 9-of-13 from the field and scored 28 points as Colorado State came back to beat Northern Colorado 72-65 on Friday night.

Northern Colorado led 55-48 with nine minutes to play but Colorado State (3-2) finished the game’s final 4:41 on an 11-3 run, during which the Rams made 9 of 12 free throws. Avila was a perfect 10 of 10 from the free throw line on the night. He also made an impact defensively with three steals and two blocks.
