Mountain West Conference Predictions

The Mountain West Conference Tournament, also known as the Mountain West Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, is a single-elimination basketball tournament that involves all eleven schools representing the conference. The winner of the tournament will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, but the winners of the regular season are awarded the true conference championship.

Favorites to Win the 2022 Mountain West Conference Tournament

Boise State Broncos

The Boise State Broncos are the regular-season champions of the Mountain West after finishing with a conference record of 15-3. They have +280 odds to win the Mountain West Tournament.

The Broncos had four players scoring ten or more points per game, but Abu Kigab is the best player on this team. The Canadian forward averaged 14.7 points per game, 5.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 steals. He is not a great shooter from behind the three-point line, but he does shoot well from the field.

Guard Marcus Shaver Jr. also carries a lot of the offensive load. Shaver Jr. averages 13.9 points per game on some strong shooting.

Defensively, Boise State is anchored by Mladen Armus. The Serbian forward only scored seven points per game this season, but he grabbed 7.8 rebounds and averaged over one block. I would not be surprised if Boise State wins this tournament, but I expect Colorado State to give them some problems along the way.

Colorado State Rams

The Colorado State Rams had an excellent regular season and would have been named the regular-season champions of the Mountain West if they beat Boise State in their last game. They have +360 odds to win the Mountain West Tournament.

Colorado State was the best Mountain West team for most of the season and ranked for a lot of the season. Their success has been in large part to David Roddy, a 6’5” junior guard from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Roddy scored 19.5 points per game and grabbed 7.6 rebounds. He shoots the ball efficiently from the field and has hit 57.5% of his shots this season.

After David Roddy, Isaiah Stevens is the most impactful player on offense. He scored 14.8 points per game and averaged 4.9 assists. He is an outstanding free-throw shooter and hits 90% of his shots from the line.

The Rams had some big regular-season wins this year and were a tough matchup in conference play. The Rams beat Boise State twice, San Diego State once, and Wyoming once. They did not lose one game to any teams in the bottom half of the Mountain West. Since the Rams have battled and beaten the best of them, I expect them to win the Mountain West Tournament.

San Diego State Aztecs

San Diego State has a historically strong basketball program. They have been to 13 March Madnesses, five of which came in the last ten years. This season could be no different if they perform well in this tournament. The Aztecs have +370 odds to win the Mountain West Tournament.

San Diego State has a pretty weak offense but has a great defense. They give up 58.2 points per game, only second in the country to North Texas.

The Aztecs do have one offensive weapon: Matt Bradley. Bradley is a 6’4” senior guard who averages 17.8 points per game, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.1 steals. He hits 41.7 of his three-point attempts and gives San Diego State a lot of offensive firepower. He will need to perform well in these games.

If the Aztecs want to win this tournament and go to March Madness, they need to depend on their defense. They simply do not have enough offensive skill to win by scoring a lot of points.
