CHICAGO (AP) -- Gary Talton scored 20 points, including a perfect 12 for 12 from the free-throw line, and added five rebounds and five assists to lead Illinois-Chicago to its seventh straight victory by defeating Colorado State 64-55 on Saturday afternoon.

UIC (8-1) trailed 46-45 with 5:45 remaining after Wes Eikmeier hit a free throw for Colorado State. Seconds later, Will Simonton made a lay-up to give the Rams a 47-46 lead and Colorado State went on a 17-9 run from that point on to seal the victory.

Daniel Barnes scored 14 points, Marc Brown had 12 points and four rebounds and Josh Crittle chipped in with 10 for the Flames, which haven't suffered a loss since Nov. 16 when New Mexico beat them 66-59 in the Paradise Jam Tournament.
