PODCAST: Talking Mountain West hoops with CBS Sports' Matt Norlander

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

CBSSports.com senior blogger Matt Norlander joined the podcast to discuss the Mountain West as the league heads into the final week, and then the league tournament.

In our latest edition of the podcast we bring on Matt Norlander who is the senior blogger of CBSSports.com's Eye on College Basketball blog, and he does a very good job. We bring him on to discuss how New Mexico stacks up against Gonzaga, and the rest of the top teams this year.

Plus, the discussion turns to New Mexico's chances of possibly earning a No. 1 seed come Selection Sunday, which is just a mere two weeks away. There is still a lot of basketball to be played, so anything is possible.

The Mountain West has had a banner year, but what it all comes down to is how well teams do when the light is on. For the league to truly earn respect as a major conference, at least for this year, there needs to be a team who makes it beyond the Sweet 16.

Below is our latest podcast, so please give it a listen:
