College Basketball Rankings: Three Mountain West Teams Ranked

UNLV, BYU and San Diego State are now ranked in both the coaches and AP polls with New Mexico getting a few votes in the polls. Glad to see the Mountain West getting some respect in the early season polls.

The ACC a basketball rich conference only has one team in Duke ranked, the Big East has six teams, Big 12 has five teams the Big 10 has four teams, SEC has three and the Pac-10 has only one. So, the Mountain West is right in line with most of the larger basketball leagues.
