The WAC is not good at all this year in basketball.
I would like to think the Utah State and Nevada are good teams. The reality, though, is that both have a lot to prove. USU has had a soft schedule and Nevada has thrown up some clunkers this year.
NMSU is unproven and inconsistent as well. Those three teams were strong not too long ago. All three were perennial tournament teams.
The reality is that whoever gets a berth this year from the conference will have to win the league tournament. But this does bode well for NMSU. It is a wide open conference. The Aggies lost twice this year to Utah State and split with Nevada. Realistically, they could have swept the Wolf Pack.
Darkhorse teams include Idaho, Boise and possibly even Louisiana Tech. I have not been impressed by San Jose State or Fresno State.
