2021 Mountain West Basketball Tournament Bracket, TV Schedule Revealed
Mountain West tourney is set
Bracket is a go.
After the rescheduled games that were postponed, the Mountain West tournament is set with its bracket and schedule. If this past week of games has shown us anything, the conference tournament is going to be wild.
The Mountain West is trying to get four Mountain West teams in the NCAA Tournament but that could be tough after Boise State’s loss to Fresno State and also Colorado State losing to Nevada in heartbreaking fashion.
The Mountain West does have four teams in the top 50 of the NET but getting all of these teams in the field will be very difficult.
Q: Who has the 𝗠𝗢𝗦𝗧 teams ranked in the top 50 of the NET among the non-autonomy conferences?

This tournament should be exciting as the top five teams have a chance to make some noise this week in Las Vegas, and that includes Nevada who could play spoiler and eliminate a team’s NCAA Tournament’s at-large berth and they open with Boise State. The Broncos are already on thin ice and are currently on a three-game losing streak.
The tournament tips off Wednesday morning at the Thomas & Mack Center with the opening round games with the bottom six seeds.
