Week 11 Mountain West Basketball Power Rankings: League Play Is Sorting Things Out
Conference play is helping to create a pecking order.
Is the gap closing to the top?
With conference play going into its fourth week there is a bit more clarity on who is good and not good in the league. This past week Boise State had a chance to pull off an upset against Nevada and Fresno State, but the Broncos came up short in both of those games.
The loses to the top two teams in the league did not damage its ranking as Boise State is still at No. 5 with the close loses.
UNLV bounced back from the peculiar 106-88 loss to Air Force to wallop San Jose State by 38 points, so maybe that loss to the Falcons was an abnormality.
Speaking of the Falcons, confidence is still low on this team despite them defeating the Rebels and San Diego State by double-digits, but they were blown out by the Wolf Pack.
The Aztecs which looked all about lost did make a move in the rankings to the sixth spot after rolling past New Mexico over the weekend.
These rankings go through games played from Jan. 14 – Jan. 21
