Week 16 Mountain West Men's basketball schedule

The New Mexico at Colorado State match up is the highlight of the week (and possibly of the season) as the Mountain West Conference season approaches its apex. MW Connection has the schedule and the top three teams of Week 16.

The Mountain West Conference regular season is speeding towards it's conclusion and this week's action will determine a lot about the post season. Here are the top games of the week:

  • The New Mexico Lobos at the Colorado St. Rams - Sat. 2 pm MT | Moby Arena, Ft. Collins, CO | TV: NBC Sports Network: This is the showdown almost no one expected as the Rams try to gain a foothold on first place in the MWC and the Lobos try to take the final step towards securing said championship. CSU has been nearly unstoppable at home while UNM has been strong on the road overall. This may be the game of the year in the MWC.
  • Colorado St. at the UNLV Runnin' Rebels: Wed. 7:15 pm PT | Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas, NV | TV: CBS Sports Network: Another week, another must win game for the UNLV Runnin' Rebels. This time it's Colorado St. taking the spot with UNLV battling for its post-season life and the Rams looking to stake claim to what was once the Rebels' birthright - a regular season MWC title. Can UNLV go 3 for 3 on must win games?
  • The Air Force Falcons at the Boise St. Broncos: Wed. 6 pm MT | Taco Bell Arena, Boise, ID | TV: Online only at - The Falcons and Broncos are both playing for MWC Tourament seeding as their NCAA Tournament hopes have faded in the past week or so. This game (which, is available on the internet only) could determine the fate of both teams regardless of if they make the NCAA Tournament feed.
