Mountain West Tournament Preview/Predictions

Posted by Lobofan2003 on March 10, 2021 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)

The Mountain West tourney should prove fun and exciting with a team that has been dominated of late (SDSU) and three other teams on the bubble (CSU, Utah State, Boise State) all fighting for their tournament lives. Utah State is the 2-time defending champion of this tournament, having defeated the Aztecs each of the last two years.


Players to Watch:

Colorado State - Roddy: Do everything Power Forward; many have thought CSU has over-achieved this year and if they are going to make an NCAA tournament, he is going to have to put them on his back

Utah State - Queta: MW Defensive Player of the Year at Center. Block machine, NBA prospect, Great offensive player in the post as well

San Diego State - Mitchell: MW Player of the Year; Senior Forward is one of the toughest players you'll ever watch and can score both outside and inside. When the Aztecs slumped this year, it was because Mitchell was out with injury

Boise State - Alston: Another NBA prospect and fantastic wing. He is numero uno on teams' scounting report for Boise State, it will be interesting to see what happens to the Broncos if other players are forced to get theres. Alston is going to have to be aggressive attacking the basket if Boise is to make noise in this tournament

Nevada - Grant Sherfield: Transfer, MW's leading scorer: He made the gaming winning three-pointer against CSU last Friday and is a driving and scoring machine. Good luck guarding him


Predictions: I am bucking the experts and kind of tradition in the MW Conference Tournament, but I think with so much on the line for the top seeds (NCAA Tournament berth(s), etc.) that we are going to see a chalk kind of tournament. CSU/Utah State in the semifinals will be the game to watch because it may be a winner in-loser out type game when it comes to the NCAA tournament.

10 Seed Air Force over 7 Seed UNLV *****Upset pick

6 Seed Fresno State over 11 Seed UNM
