The Mountain West regular season has concluded, and conference tournaments have begun. It will be interesting to see how the Mountain West tournament plays out, as many teams have played competitive, close games over the course of the season. Let’s take a look at our last bracketology of the season and where Mountain West teams may land.
Nevada: After a controversial loss to Utah State, the Wolf Pack bounced back and finished the season with a win over a strong Aztec squad that had been a thorn in their side. The Wolf Pack are a lock for the tournament, and I see them as a six-seed.
Utah State: The Aggies earned a share of the regular season title and will be the two-seed in Las Vegas this week. A loss in their first game might put them back on the bubble, but I think they have done enough to earn their spot in “The Big Dance.” I see the Aggies as a ten-seed.
San Diego State: It was a rough week for the Aztecs, as they lost games to Nevada and Fresno State. The Aztecs fell to the four-seed and will need to get some momentum early in the conference tournament where they will take on a pesky UNLV squad.
Fresno State: The Bulldogs finished the season strong with victories over San Diego State and San Jose State. They look like a sleeper team in the conference tournament and should be a contender for the NIT if they can make a run in Las Vegas.
How do you guys see this playing out? Should the Mountain West get three teams in the “Big Dance?”
