San Diego State Picked to Win 2016-17 MW Men's Basketball Regular-Season Title

Posted: Updated:

From the University of Nevada, Reno: 

For the fourth consecutive year, San Diego State is the preseason favorite to finish the 2016-17 regular season in first-place, according to a vote of the Conference media. The league’s predicted order of finish was announced today by the Mountain West at Media Day, being held at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel.
 
The Aztecs received 23 of a possible 27 first-place votes and 293 points to garner the top spot in the poll. Nevada claimed the second spot, earning 234 points, while New Mexico received three first-place votes and 249 points to finish third. This is the highest predicted finish for the Wolf Pack since joining the Mountain West in 2012.
 
Fresno State, which received one first-place vote, collected 200 points for fourth place, followed by Boise State in fifth (164 points) and Utah State (153 points) in sixth. Rounding out the poll were Colorado State (146 points) in seventh, UNLV (120 points) in eighth, Air Force (90 points) in ninth, Wyoming (73 points) in 10th and San José State (41 points) in 11th. 
 
San Diego State is coming off a 28-10 record and a 16-2 mark in Mountain West play in 2015-16. The Aztecs won the MW regular-season championship but fell to Fresno State in the Mountain West Men’s Basketball Championship Game. SDSU made it to the semifinals of the NIT before losing to George Washington. Head coach Steve Fisher returns three starters, including 2015-16 MW Freshman of the Year in Jeremy Hemsley.
