New Mexico and San Diego State are the two teams that deserve to meet in the Mountain West title game, and being the top seeds is the main reason why. There is not much on the line in this game as both teams are in the NCAA tournament, so seeding is the only thing on the line.
San Diego State is fighting for a three seed, and New Mexico is looking to move off of the eight/nine seed line. Both teams struggled some to get to this championship game. The Aztecs had a big lead over UNLV but the Rebels made a comeback to cut the score to single digits yet San Diego State was able to hold on for the win.
New Mexico was in a battle with Boise State for the entire game. The Lobos had a sizable lead for most of the game, but the Broncos used their three-point shot to come back to tie the game and have a chance to win the game. This game was the late game and ended well after 11 p.m. local time and the two teams were very physical, so that late game and the bumps and bruises could give San Diego State the edge.
This game has the chance to be an epic matchup, especially if it can live up to the first two games where each team won a game.
