WAC Tournament Prediction
The WAC has been dominated by New Mexico State as of late. The Aggies have won seven of the last nine conference tournaments and head into this year's event as the No. 1 seed. Head coach Chris Jans' team finished 24-6 on the year (14-4 WAC) and also grabbed an impressive win over Davidson.
There is certainly not a lack of competition in this tournament. However, it is worth noting that NMSU has posted a 5-1 record against the No. 2, 3 and 4 seed teams. The Aggies allow an opponent shooting percentage of just 39.2% (T-No. 14 in NCAA) and rank No. 90 in the KenPom ratings.
New Mexico State is led by standout guard Teddy Allen. The junior guard leads the conference in scoring (19.5 points per game) and shoots an impressive 85.3% from the free throw line. Look for Allen to singlehandedly pick apart opposing defenses and lock down another bid for the Aggies.
