Otherwise, the field consists of teams that will be fighting for the automatic NCAA Tournament qualification that come with winning the conference tournament. If there’s one team to watch in that pursuit, it’s Nevada (19-11, 12-6), which enters as arguably the hottest team in the conference. The Wolf Pack will be the No. 3 seed after winning six straight entering Saturday’s regular season finale against San Diego State.

Nevada took a 45-36 halftime lead and threatened to hand the Aztecs their second loss in three games. But San Diego State rallied for an 83-76 victory. No. 4 seed Nevada also enters the tournament trending in the right direction after winning its last five regular-season games, a stretch that included an upset of the Aztecs on Feb. 22.
