Three old people.

Two who have been in Fort Collins since the very beginning of the rebuild that led Colorado State’s men’s basketball team to a likely return to the NCAA Tournament.

One who has been at CSU less than a year but has quickly become a favorite fan and teammate as much for who he is outside of basketball as what he can do on the court.

The Rams will honor Kendle Moore, Adam Thistlewood and Chandler Jacobs on Saturday ahead of the 6:30 p.m. regular season finale against Boise State at a sold-out Moby Arena.

Yet this is not necessarily a farewell. With the NCAA extending athletes an additional year of eligibility due to COVID-shortened seasons, Moore and Thistlewood have the opportunity to continue their college basketball careers.
