2013 Mountain West basketball standings: A crowded bunch after New Mexico

Ethan Miller

New Mexico sits atop the Mountain West standings, but it is crowded with five teams who have two loses.

The big Mountain West game on Wednesday night was the New Mexico Lobos against the Colorado St. Rams. The Lobos came out on top with the win, but they did nearly blew a 22-point lead in the process. The win gave New Mexico a two-game lead in a loaded Mountain West, which as we keep seeing could be a six-bid league come March.

The Lobos are the only undefeated team in the league, and already have wins over league contenders UNLV, Colorado State and Boise State. With the depth in the league there are currently five teams with two losses behind New Mexico, and this good start in league play could possibly be enough to give the Lobos the regular season league title.

There are still 12 games left, so anything can happen, which is a lot of basketball, and this two-game lead could evaporate quickly if New Mexico has a rough patch. They do go on the road this weekend to play San Diego State on Saturday and then at Wyoming on next Wednesday. Those are two tough places to play, and there is a chance they could fall back to the pack.

Here is the current standings after Thursday's games:
