Dorian Green hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with a minute remaining and a three-point play with 19 seconds left as No. 24 Colorado State celebrated its first game as a ranked team in 59 years with a thrilling 66-60 win over San Diego State on Wednesday night.

The Rams (20-4, 7-2 Mountain West) matched their win total from last year and extended their home-court winning streak to 27 games.

Green's 3-pointer with 1:03 left gave Colorado State a 61-60 lead — the 15th lead change of the game. After Xavier Thames' airball, Green's three-point play made it 64-60, and the Rams capped the victory with Jon Octeus' breakaway dunk with 10 seconds left.

Green led the Rams with 16 points, the same total that Chase Tapley had for the Aztecs (18-6, 6-4).
