Right now is a big time for football news with the season less than 10 days away. Still with a recent important piece of basketball news released; we wanted to not to let it slip through the cracks.
The Mountain West released it's full conference schedule for men's basketball and now you can plan you winter accordingly. With 11 teams it creates a slightly unbalanced schedule as the Pokes will miss one road game and one home game with an opponent. I have to think that things turned out pretty well for Wyoming who will avoid a trip to San Diego State and not host UNLV. Both of those teams will be near the top of the league once again. Hopefully the Pokes can take advantage of this favorable schedule and maximize their games against Fresno State, Nevada and San Jose State.
Already six of the 18 conference games have television broadcasts/streaming set.
Those listings are:
- 1/8/14 - New Mexico: ESPNU/ESPN3
- 1/11/14 - @ Boise State: ESPN3
- 2/5/14 - @ New Mexico: ESPNU/ESPN3
- 2/8/14 - @ UNLV: ESPN3
- 2/11/14 - San Diego State: ESPNU
- 3/1/14 - Boise State - CBS Sports Network
Potentially having three games on ESPNU is a great bonus. I would expect Root Sports to also pick up a number of these open broadcasts as well. I'm sure the league would stream any conference games that aren't broadcast or streamed elsewhere. One final bright note is that the regular season will conclude on Saturday, March 8th with the Cowboys hosting the Rams in the Border War.
