The Mountain West Conference Tournament starts with today with three games, as the No. 9 Utah St. Aggies faces the No. 8 Wyoming Cowboys, the No. 10 Air Force Falcons take on No. 7 UNLV Runnin Rebels and No. 11 San Jose St. Spartans play the No. 6 Colorado St. Rams. The Rebels have fallen so far, especially after they opened the season with a 7-1 record and had beaten the Oregon Ducks and Indiana Hoosiers. It’s kind of bizarre to think that even happened, as they finished the season with an overall record of 17-14. Anyways, the Mountain West Conference Tournament schedule are as follows…

Opening Round: March 9 (MWN)
Game 1: No. 9 Utah State Aggies vs. No. 8 Wyoming Cowboys
Game 2: No. 10 Air Force Falcons vs. No. 7 UNLV Runnin’ Rebels
Game 3: No. 11 San Jose State Spartans vs. No. 6 Colorado State Rams

Quarterfinals: March 10 (CBSSN)
Game 4: Winner Game 1 vs. No. 1 San Diego State Aztecs
Game 5: No. 5 Nevada Wolf Pack vs. No. 4 New Mexico Lobos
Game 6: Winner Game 2 vs. No. 2 Fresno State Bulldogs
Game 7: Winner Game 3 vs. No. 3 Boise State Broncos

Semifinals: March 11 (CBSSN)
Game 8: Winner Game 4 vs. Winner Game 5
Game 9: Winner Game 6 vs. Winner Game 7

Championship: March 12 (CBS)
Game 10: Winner Game 8 vs. Winner Game 9

Prediction: If you asked me before conference play began, I’d a said the UNLV Runnin Rebels or Boise St. Broncos. However, they both fell off during conference play. The team that I’m going to predict, is the same team that was 7-6 in their non-conference schedule and beaten only one good team. That’s the San Diego St. Aztecs, who went 16-2 in conference and turned their season around. The Aztecs have the number one ranked defense and have a legendary coach in Steve Fisher…that’s all I need here to say that they win the Mountain West Conference Tournament.
