Here are a few things to pay attention to in the Mountain West as the NCAA basketball season nears and signing day is around the corner:
Best incoming freshman
SG Hugh Greenwood to New Mexico
This season, in regards to impact performers, it appears the Mountain West Conference has a bit of an Australian-esque feel to it. Greenwood, who was one of five named First Team All-U-19 at the World Championships, possesses an impressive skill set as well as contagious energy at both ends. The lanky wing-type has an innate ability to score as well as the IQ for the game to make others better with the pass. Whether it's draining a 3-point shot or locating a teammate with a nifty assist, he has the whole skill package at the 1, 2 or 3. Due to his savvy and international experience, he should mesh well with the MWC Freshman of the Year Kendall Williams.
New Mexico and Boise State land prospects from Australia worth watching in the Mountain West, writes Joel Francisco.
