It’s Monday, and we are back at it. Mountain West basketball is as good as ever this season. Plus, the recruiting may be over, but our content is just getting started. Check out our original coverage and what we can find from the world wide web below.
The Mountain West conference tournament isn’t here yet, but San Diego State vs. New Mexico in the PIT provided a tourney-like atmosphere. The Aztecs trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half, but battled back and won in thrilling fashion. Down by 1 with six seconds left, Lamont Butler drilled a three at the buzzer to give them the victory. With the win, SDSU has secured at least tie for the MBB regular season conference title.
There are no easy games in the Mountain West. After big win over New Mexico earlier in the week, Boise State squandered a lead by failing to score the last few minutes of regulation and San Jose State never gave up. The Spartans overcame a 12 point deficit to force overtime and had all the momentum in the final period to seal the deal. Omari Moore led the way with 24 points and SJSU had a huge advantage on the boards all night long, out rebounding the Broncos 53-32.
