Final Mountain West Basketball Power Rankings: Nevada Reclaims Top Spot
Utah State’s run at the top last one week.
Wolf Pack are back on top.
That was quick.
Nevada is back on top of our final power rankings after it snapped its three-game winning streak against San Diego State and in blowout fashion, 81-53. That win knocked Utah State’s one-week run at the top to an end, as both the Wolf Pack and Aggies share the Mountain West regular season crown.
This was not all that shocking as Nevada’s win over San Diego State trumped Utah State’s win over Colorado State this past week, and it helped that the Wolf Pack blew out the fourth-placed Aztecs. The first-place vote difference was just 6-4 in favor of Nevada.
Fresno State and San Diego State swapped spots with the Bulldogs now third with the Aztecs fourth, and the rest of the poll remained the same.
These rankings go through games played from March 4 – March 10
