Pierce Hornung had eight points and eight rebounds for the Rams (8-4), who play Jacksonville State for the championship on Thursday. UTEP faces Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the consolation game.
Eikmeier's 3-pointer gave Colorado State a 56-50 lead with two minutes remaining. C.J. Cooper hit from behind the arc for the Miners (6-7) and had a potential game-tying 3-point shot with two seconds left, but it missed.
The Rams have won six straight against the Miners, although the former Western Athletic Conference rivals had not met since 1998.
