With the news that San Jose States' mens basketball program received a failing Academic Progress Rate score and will be ineligible for 2015 postseason play, the 2015 Mountain West Conference Tournament will have a 10-team bracket format.
A Coloradoan story published earlier today first broke the news.
According to the Coloradoan article, Mountain West Spokesperson Javan Hedlund said that league directors would discuss how to format the 10-team bracket at the Mountain West joint council meetings on May 5-6 in Phoenix, Ariz.
The tournament's bracket format will revert to its original format when San Jose State regains its postseason eligibility in 2015-2016.
San Jose State's women's program did not receive a failing APR score, so the women's MWC Tournament will remain unchanged in 2015.
