The Mountain West has set the format for the 2014 men’s and women’s basketball tournaments in Las Vegas, to be held from March 10-15, 2014.
All 11 teams for each gender will make the tournament — the No. 6 seed will face the No. 11 seed, the No. 7 seed will face the No. 10 seed, and the No. 8 seed will face the No. 9 seed in the first round. The conference adds San Jose State and Utah State this summer. The first two days of competition will solely feature women’s games, with only men’s games the following two days. Semifinals will be played March 14, and the finals will be played March 15. Click below for a PDF of the tournament schedule.
Also, Boise State president Bob Kustra was named the incoming chairman of the Mountain West’s board of directors executive committee, meaning he will take over as chairman in the 2014-15 academic year.
