FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State University and its athletics multimedia rights holder, Learfield’s Rams Sports Properties, announced today that Adam Nigon will serve as color analyst for the 2016-17 men’s basketball season. He will join Voice of the Rams Brian Roth, who will handle play-by-play duties.
Nigon, a Colorado native and member of the CSU men’s basketball team from 2007-2011, will work alongside Roth this season to call game action for his alma mater. A former walk on who later earned a full scholarship, Nigon ranks on the CSU career top-10 chart for steals and games played and top-15 in 3-pointers made and attempted. He tied for the team high with 59 3-pointers during his junior season as well as grabbing a team-best 43 steals that year.
Following his time at CSU, Nigon coached and developed young local basketball talent. Currently, he works for The Chateaux at Fox Meadows in Broomfield and owns Celebration Beverage.
“This is a phenomenal opportunity for me, as a long-time fan of this program and as someone who shares that deep connection to Fort Collins and CSU as a former student-athlete,” said Nigon. “I’m very excited for this and to be able to work next to a legend in Brian Roth. This will be a great opportunity to be a part of the Rams’ future successes. Go Rams!”
“We are thrilled to have Adam join our men’s basketball radio broadcasts this season,” Director of Athletics Joe Parker said. “He is very familiar with the history of the program, so that gives him some insight into where the program is now. He will also bring that unique perspective as a former student-athlete, both to the game on the court but also what student-athletes have to handle off the court. I look forward to hearing him on the broadcasts with Brian, as will all CSU Rams fans.”
For Roth’s 17th year back in the play-by-play chair, the Rams also have a new home on the radio dial as Fort Collins-based Townsquare Media Northern Colorado’s KARS “Rock 102.9” FM will serve as the Rams’ flagship station. In Denver, Mile High Sports KDCO 1340 AM and 104.7 FM is carrying all football and men’s basketball games, as well as select women’s basketball games.
The men’s basketball team has won more games in the past four seasons (87) than in any four-year stretch in program history, earning three postseason invitations in that span under head coach Larry Eustachy. Tickets are on sale now through the CSU Athletics Ticket Office at CSURams.com/tickets or by calling toll free at 1-800-491-RAMS (7267).
