The champs are back! San Diego State men’s basketball is expected to repeat as Mountain West champions. The Aztecs were robbed last spring of a potential Final Four run thanks to the unforeseen pandemic. Fear not, they should be great again.
Wednesday was highlighted by Mountain West media day (via Zoom, of course) for men’s basketball, and the typical names are expected to succeed in the Mountain West. Save for one, of course. It’s not often Boise State is picked second in the league, and garnering first-place votes. Derrick Alston surprisingly returned to school and will lead a roster filled with high quality transfers now eligible. Can the Broncos make a run this spring?
There is Mountain West football on TV tonight. It’s been an embarrassing week for Boise State football, dealing with the fallout of a rare home blowout loss to BYU last Friday. With quarterbacks Hank Bachmeier, Jack Sears, and Chase Cord all questionable for the game, the Broncos might be relegated to fourth-string QB Cade Fennegan. Could BSU be on upset watch? Read above to see what Athlon thinks.
