Everything you need to know to be ready to watch the MWC tournament...
March is here and the NCAA tournament is about to begin. Before the start of the ultimate sports tournament comes the conference tournaments. The warm-ups to the bug dance. The Mountain West Conference tournament will take place March 11-15th in Las Vegas. With the regular season winding down there is some clarity of how the seeding for the tournament will shake out. (Here is a link to the tournament bracket showing the television coverage: http://themwc.cstv.com/auto_pdf/p_hotos/s_chools/mwc/sports/m-baskbl/auto_pdf/2008-mbb-tourney-bracket ) To get everyone up to speed here is a quick crash course guide to Mountain West Conference men's basketball.
Waiting to Die - Teams not sorry the season is coming to an end
The Tournament is a Disappointment if... TCU continues to prove they can't win away from Fort Worth.
Projected #5 (Games Left 3/5 TCU 3/8 SDSU)
The Tournament is a Disappointment if... the Utes lose in the first round, regardless of how they play in the game.
The Tournament is Successful if... and only if they win the tournament. With the huge advantage the Rebels have from playing at home, anything less than the tournament victory would be a let done.
