It was a little bit more complicated than some would have expected, but Nevada ultimately claimed the top seed in the Mountain West Tournament. The Wolf Pack (15-3) enter with an overall record of 28-3, and are a lock to hear their name on Selection Sunday.
The No. 2 seed, Utah State, is sitting on the bubble. The Aggies (15-3) have had a fantastic season in Craig Smith’s first year as head coach, and as long as they don’t take any bad losses in the conference tournament, they should be on the right side of the bubble.
Fresno State (13-5), San Diego State (11-7) and UNLV (11-7) round out the rest of the top five and received first round byes.
