The best game of the quarterfinals in the Mountain West Tournament just might be third seeded UNLV vs. sixth seeded Wyoming. UNLV enters as the No. 20 team in the country, and with a 25-7 overall (9-5 in conference) record. Wyoming is 20-10, 6-8, and needs at least a couple victories in the conference tournament to become a serious threat for an at-large bid into the NCAA's field of 68.
These teams met last Saturday with the Rebels prevailing 74-63 at home. But in the first meeting between the two on Feb. 4, Wyoming stole a 68-66 victory.
Game date/time: 9:30 p.m. MT, Thursday, March 8, 2012
