Nevada (26-6, 15-3) is the only Mountain West team expected to pick up a tournament bid

The 2018 Mountain West men’s basketball tournament bracket is set.

Nevada notched its second consecutive outright Mountain West regular season title and will look to defend its status atop the league next week.

Boise State checks in at the No. 2 seed, with upstart New Mexico and Fresno State in the No. 3 and No. 4 spots.

San Diego State checks in with the No. 5 seed and Wyoming is No. 6.

Teams 7-11 are Utah State, UNLV, Air Force, Colorado State, and San Jose State.

With Nevada in position for an at-large bid, a team other than the Wolf Pack will have to win the tournament in order for the Mountain West to send multiple teams in the NCAA Tournament.
