Mountain West basketball standings: Colorado State, New Mexico pulling away

New, 8 comments

Colorado State and New Mexico are pulling away from the rest of the Mountain West.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The second half of the Mountain West schedule is under way, and through the first game there has already been some wackiness. It started with UNLV falling on the road, again, this time to Air Force, and that loss put UNLV at 5-5 in league play and in fifth place.

The top of the league has begun to separate themselves with New Mexico and Colorado having just two losses, and are two games ahead of San Diego State and Air Force.

However, that could change this weekend when Colorado State travels about an hour southt to face Air Force. Air Force is fresh off a big win over UNLV on Wednesday, and is 11-1 at home.

Other changes could occur when Boise State looks to upset New Mexico on the road, and then San Diego State goes to UNLV.

So before more mayhem occurs here is the current standings:
