Opening round games are here.
The opening round of the Mountain West tournament takes place on Wednesday afternoon and it is a streaming-only affair, so stand by your phone, laptop, tablet or hook up your favorite streaming device to your television to watch these games.
The opening round games of the conference tournament can turn into some fun games as these teams are typically evenly matched.
One game that could be very interesting is Wyoming taking on New Mexico and that is because of Cowboys prolific scorer Justin James. The Lobos are a solid eight-point favorite but James is leagues leading scorer at 21.8 points and has the capability to take over any single game.
Colorado State and Boise State should be the most balanced game as the two split the games this year. The Rams have one of the best forwards in the league with Nico Carvacho who is basically a lock for a double-double. Broncos counter with guards Justinian Jessup and Derrick Alston who combine for 27.2 points per game.
