When the Pac-12 fell from the ranks of the elite conferences last season, the Mountain West earned the title of "Best in the West." Now the Pac-12 is once again a premier conference, but the Mountain West still has a number of NCAA tournament caliber teams in San Diego State, UNLV, New Mexico, Colorado State and Nevada.

This conference has a different makeup this year, now with nine teams instead of eight. Texas Christian bolted for the Big-12, and Nevada and Fresno State both joined from the WAC.

With a pair of possible top 10 teams in San Diego State and UNLV, the Mountain West is better than ever.

Here is a 2012-13 season preview for the Mountain West, with team-by-team breakdowns, a preseason all-conference awards and predictions for how the final standings will shape up.
