What a tough way to end such a great season for Colorado State. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)
Chris Dobbertean, SB Nation's College Basketball Guru, is going to be releasing a new bracket every day until his final bracket appears Sunday morning. If something changes regarding the Mountain West teams in his bracket, I'll post it on the site. Today's post features New Mexico and Colorado State switching spots after the Lobos beat the Rams last night.
Last night, New Mexico won the battle for the Chance to Dance over Colorado State and according to Dobbertean, that is enough to put the Lobos as the fourth team out of the bracket. Dobbertean isn't the only one having New Mexico's name popping up in his projections, but he is one of a select few who have the Lobos in the first four out.
New Mexico wasn't the only Mountain West team moving around in today's bracket, UNLV is up to a 6 seed following their sixth straight victory Thursday night. UNLV is a bit of a mystery to most bracketologists, as they range anywhere from a 5 seed to a 9 seed. A win over San Diego State tonight would obviously get rid of the doubters, but whether or not that will happen is yet to be seen.
Neither San Diego State or BYU moved in this bracket, staying as a 2 and 3 seed.
As expacted after last night's loss to New Mexico, Colorado State doesn't show up anywhere in his projections and most likely will be heading to the NIT due to them having no remaining games.
All of this could change on a moment's notice (BYU plays New Mexico tonight and UNLV plays San Diego State) so there will more than likely be another post like this with an update tomorrow morning.
