It’s Championship Week in college basketball, and by Sunday evening we’ll know the full field of 68 teams looking to cut down the nets in Indianapolis come April. Before Sunday, however, there are automatic bids to be clinched and bubble cases to be improved as conference tournaments work their way toward crowning a champion.
The Mountain West Conference men’s basketball tournament gets underway on Wednesday, March 10 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The first round will be live streamed on Mountain West Network. The quarterfinals and semifinals take place on Thursday, March 11 and Friday, March 12 and will air on CBS Sports Network. The men’s championship game is scheduled for Saturday, March 13 and will air on CBS.
If you aren’t around a TV to follow the tournament on CBS Sports Network or CBS, you can stream them through Paramount Plus. The service is currently offering a one-month free trial. You can also get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the tournament.
