The finals for the 2012 Mountain West basketball tournament is set with the No. 1 San Diego State taking on No. 2 New Mexico. San Diego State used a big second half to thwart of Colorado State to win 79-69 and then the late game was very exciting between New Mexico and host UNLV. New Mexico trailed 12-0 and 17-4 early in the game, but they came back to beat UNLV by five points.
Both San Diego State and New Mexico split the season series and each team has been playing well down the stretch with San Diego State playing slightly better. With this being the championship game between the top two seeds and both teams being ranked it better be good.
