Mountain West Basketball Power Rankings: Ringing In 2020
San Diego State is our first No. 1.
Two teams claim first place votes.
The Mountain West basketball season is at the midway point and now is a good point to start our weekly power rankings now that we know what teams are good or not so good.
San Diego State is one of just a handful of undefeated teams in the country and are No. 15 in the latest AP poll and are the only Mountian West team ranked in the polls.
Utah State is another early Mountain West contender but they are not quite at San Diego State’s level with a pair of losses and sitting at 12-2. New Mexico is also at 12-2 just like the Aggies and these three teams are the early contenders.
The rest of the league, or at least the middle, is a jumbled mess and will see some shuffling throughout these rankings over the rest of the season. When league play gets going there definitely will be some shuffling over the next month.
These initial rankings do have the Aztecs at the top but they do not own every first place vote as there are two votes allocated for Utah State.
|1.||San Diego State (10-first place votes)||1st|
|2.||Utah State (2-first place votes)||2nd|
|11.||San Jose State||11th|
