Ron Chenoy/USA TODAY SportsTony Snell and New Mexico have had a great season, but could be vulnerable to a tourney upset.Let's get one thing out of the way quickly: the Mountain West Conference is underrated. It has been for a while. That's the unfortunate downside to playing in the Time Zone That TV Forgot.
It's still hard to imagine, though that a conference that ranks third on KenPom.com (ahead of the ACC, Pac-12, Big 12 and SEC) is only in line for one top-five seed. But that's what Joe Lunardi says, and we certainly won't fight back: More lower-seeded MWC teams mean more potential Giant Killers. The best ones, though, might not be the teams you'd expect.
