A year ago at this time UNLV had to watch as the San Diego State Aztecs celebrated a Mountain West Conferece championship on their home court. The loss ultimately wouldn't prevent the Runnin' Rebels from earning an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament, but it's a game that still lingers in the minds of those who experienced it.

Both teams know full well what it's like to be at this stage and what it takes to be here. SDSU is vying for it's third consecutive appearence in the conference title game, while UNLV has been there in three out of the last four seasons. The two programs are the winnnigest postseason teams in Mountain West history, having each claimed three conference titles to their respective names. Beyond simple bragging rights though, is the sheer maginitude of the impact this game stands to have for both schools NCAA Tournament aspirations. Winning the conference tournament all but guarentees the Aztecs no less than a two-seed on Selection Sunday. The Rebels who are sitting on the bubble - though quite comfortably - can put any concerns to rest with a win tonight.

Toss in some star power in the Aztec's Kawhi Leonard and UNLV's Tre'Von Willis, plus four straight wnis by SDSU and this game easily has all the makings of being the best game on the national schedule tonight.
