Bob Donewald

Should win conference: New Mexico State

Dark horse: UMKC or UC Bakersfield

Who else might get in: This is a one-bid league.

Why I chose New Mexico State: The Aggies will win the league's regular season title. They have the ability to score inside as well as outside. Experience - they won the conference tournament last year - they know how to win.



Rich Zvosec

Should win conference: New Mexico State

Dark horse:  Grand Canyon

Who else might get in: This is a one-bid league.

Why I chose New Mexico State: The Aggies clinched an outright regular-season title for the first time since 1993-94.  They have a roster with international flavor as nine of their 14 players hail from outside the U.S.  This means they not only beat you, but they beat you in five different languages.  The Aggies have size, depth and experience which give them an opportunity to do damage in the NCAA tournament.



Doug Bell

Should win conference: New Mexico State

Dark horse:  Grand Canyon

Who else might get in: This is a one-bid league

Why I chose New Mexico State: The Aggies are the class of the WAC and are easy money in Las Vegas where head coach Marvin Menzies will climb the ladder and cut down the final strands from the nets.
