This article is part of our Conference Preview series.
The last five seasons, the Mountain West has sent a different team via the autobid to the NCAA Tournament. New Mexico was the last team to have a grip on the conference tournament by winning three consecutive from 2012 to 2014. Nevada, under coach Eric Mussleman, has the look of a dominant force. The team won the MWC tournament in 2017 and the regular season championship in 2018. They return four starters, including fantasy studs Caleb and Cody Martin and Jordan Caroline. Musselman added Jordan Brown, a McDonald's All-American and four transfers who averaged at least 10 points per game with their previous team. It is an embarrassment of riches and Musselman is going to have to figure out how to allot minutes.
Because of the Wolf Pack's depth, it may be that none of the players are fantasy standouts. The Martin twins and Caroline should lead the way with everyone else figuring out their roles. None of the Nevada players are featured below because other teams will lean more heavily on individual players. If everything works out for Mussleman, he has a Final Four worthy team on his hands. JaQuan Lyle tore his Achilles' tendon in late September and will be lost for the season, which probably takes away one contender for the Wolf Pack's throne.
