Mountain West Basketball Tournament TicketsThe Mountain West conference is still young. Founded in 1999, it's become known as one of the most innovative conferences in the NCAA. For example, Mountain West was the first NCAA conference to have its own TV network, The Mtn. The name Mountain West may make it sound like every school in the conference is located near the Rockies. This is only partly true; member schools, including Colorado State, Boise State and Utah State, certainly fit that description. Nevertheless, the plains of Wyoming, the desert of UNLV and the Pacific Coast of Hawaii are also a part of this diverse conference. Mountain West is proud to be a conference that has strong academics. An Academic Consortium connects the schools in the conference. Leaders from the conference's member institutions have pioneered relationships that include student exchanges, inter-library loans and even shared research opportunities. To date, four Mountain West student-athletes have gone on to become Rhodes Scholars. Mountain West men's and women's basketball teams have achieved over 160 NCAA tournament appearances in total.
