NCAA Basketball: Mountain West Conference Tournament- Utah State vs San Diego State Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Get ready for some mid-week links!

Odds of each team winning the conference tournament.

Chris Murrary’s annual column before the men’s conference basketball tournament begins is always a good read. Nothing will be given away in this teaser, except you have to see which team Murray vows to streak across the gym if they win it all.

Cowboys need their defense to show up.

In last year’s tournament, a few lifetimes ago, Wyoming got hot from beyond the arc to ride into the semi-finals. That could happen this year, but it could not. However, if they don’t guard anyone, it may not matter how many 3s they sink. Coach Linder admits their defense will need to travel to have any chance at a run.

The Mountain West releases their all-conference teams.

Plus, awards and accolades.
