Basketball’s Mountain West Landscape

The Mountain West has for a long time been seen as a middle division conference, behind the power houses of Big East, Big 12, & ACC. However, San Diego State was the top team in basketball in 2019-2020 before COVID cancelled March Madness. Now the Mountain West are trying to get four teams in the tournament, but they even have a chance to get five teams in.

Currently, Boise State leads the pack at #30 in NET (and will rise after an impressive win by 1 San Diego State on Tuesday). Colorado State (#31), San Diego State (#33), & Wyoming (#38) are all currently on the correct side of the bubble. However, these teams still have to play each other and the battle royale could easily knock out a team or two.

Utah State (#64) & Fresno State (#73) find themselves on the wrong side of the bubble, and unlikely to make it into March Madness, unless they win the Mountain West Tournament. UNLV (#91) is pulling a Rutgers-styled comeback jumping 25 spots in two weeks with impressive wins against Colorado State twice, Fresno State, & Air Force by 42 points.
