The regular season has concluded

It's over. Time for the 'new' season.

Here's the final WAC standings:

Utah State 14-2
Nevada 11-5
New Mexico State 11-5
Louisiana Tech 9-7
Fresno State 7-9
San Jose State 6-10
Idaho 6-10
Boise State 5-11
Hawai'i 3-13

So Utah State will face Boise State. Nevada matches up with Idaho. New Mexico State and San Jose State meet up while Louisiana Tech and Fresno State are foes. It's late and our eyes are bleary but we think that's correct.


Utah State downed visiting New Mexico State 81-63 on the strength of Tai Wesley's 24 points and Jared Quayle's 17. It was 34-30 USU at the half but a 47-33 point differential in the second 2o minutes did the trick. Jahamr Young scored 17 for the southern Aggies.

Check out Tony Jones' Aggieville for a number of posts on the game which featured a lot of player and coach tongue-wagging. Shawn Harrison is here with his early game writeup.


Host Nevada took down Louisiana Tech 79-68 -- Chris Murray has his early game report here. Magnum Rolle was a force with 22 points and 17 boards. Luke Babbitt led all scorers with 29 markers.


Boise State appears like the opponent not to face in the WAC tourney, taking down visiting San Jose State 85-56 this afternoon. It was very solid shooting for the Broncos alongside poor shooting and ballhandling by the Spartans. If momentum matters, Greg Graham's team has it. Here's the early game report from SJSU athletics.


Idaho handled Hawaii 78-69 as senior backcourter Steffan Johnson was zoned in from long distance, hitting eight treys on his way to 28 points. Mac Hopson put up a double-double of 15 points and 11 assists. Roderick Flemings closed out his UH career with 29 points. Here is Travis Mason-Bushman's Twitter account with all sorts of game tweets.
