NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Cincinnati Bearcats vs Nevada Wolf Pack Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Before we take a look at “The Leaderboard” below, it’s only right that we give a shout-out to the only Mountain West team remaining in the big dance, Nevada. The 7th seeded Wolf Pack completed a near-impossible comeback to knock off #2 seed Cincinnati on Sunday night to advance to the Sweet Sixteen and continue to represent the Mountain West in the right way.

Keep “The Hunt” alive, Nevada!
