2014 Mountain West basketball tournament: Staff predictions

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Our staff predicts the outcome of the Mountain West tournament.

What would March Madness be without tournament predictions, so that is what we are doing here as the Mountain West tournament gets underway on Wednesday afternoon. Our staff got together to make our best guess on who would win the tournament, and we will predict the title game and the winner.

UNLV being at home has swayed some of the votes and placing UNLV in the title game, and even a few having them win the whole thing.

Author Title Game Champion
Jeremy Mauss San Diego State vs. New Mexico San Diego State
Chris Hondros San Diego State vs. New Mexico San Diego State
Jacob Schildgen UNLV vs. New Mexico New Mexico
Mark.A.Cox San Diego State vs. New Mexico New Mexico
benphillips27 UNLV vs. New Mexico UNLV
DoubleU.Why?Oh. New Mexico vs. UNLV New Mexico
Keegan Boiser New Mexico vs. UNLV UNLV
Brad Best San Diego State vs. New Mexico San Diego State
Matthew Bain San Diego State vs. New Mexico New Mexico
Terrance Dickens San Diego State vs. New Mexico New Mexico

So, out of 11 of our writers we have five going with New Mexico, three picking San Diego State and then a pair of feel that UNLV will take advantage of their home court edge and make the Mountain West a three-bid team.
