There is a little bit of separation in the latest Mountain West standings, but not much. The big surprise is Air Force being in second place.
After another crazy week of Mountain West basketball which saw Boise State able to lead UNLV wire-to-wire in a historic win at home -- yes, the court was rushed, and worth it. Then there was Air Force upseting then-No. 22 San Diego State at home to improve to 5-2 in league play.
The only team that has been able to relatively stay unscathed are the New Mexico Lobos, as they are 6-1 in the Mountain West. The Lobos are just ahead of both Air Force and Colorado State, both are 5-2. Colorado State could be the team to win the league as their two losses came against San Diego State and New mexico, but by a combined 12 points.
San Diego State and UNLV who were considered preseason favorites are stuck at 4-3. Then there is Boise State who is making a case for a NCAA at-large berth after their win over UNLV, but they are 3-4 in league play.
