The Daily Aggie :: New Mexico State Seeding Scenarios :: Version 2.0

After Wednesday night's loss to Utah State, New Mexico State is eliminated from contention for the No. 2 seed in next week's WAC tournament in Las Vegas. The Aggies still control their own destiny for the No. 3 seed but with a loss on Saturday to Nevada, depending on the outcome of both Thursday night and Saturday night's games, could find themselves as low as the No. 6 seed in the tournament.

Below is what we believe to be the scenarios for the Aggies' seeding possibilities. Remember that seeds 3 and 4 still earn a first round bye while seeds 5 and 6 play seeds 7 and 8 on day one of the WAC tournament and then should they advance, would face seeds 3 and 4 in the quarterfinals.

No. 3 - NMSU defeats Nevada and finishes 9-7
No. 4 - NMSU loses to Nevada and finishes 8-8, Idaho loses to Fresno State and finishes 8-8, Nevada defeats LA Tech and finishes 9-7, Hawai'i finishes 7-9
No. 5 - NMSU loses to Nevada, Idaho and Nevada both finish 8-8, Hawai'i finishes 7-9. Idaho earns 3 seed via win over USU, Nevada owns head-to-head tiebreaker over NMSU
No. 5 - NMSU loses to Nevada and finishes 8-8, Idaho, Hawai'i and Nevada also finish 8-8
No. 6 - NMSU loses to Nevada and finishes 8-8, Idaho defeats Fresno State and finishes 9-7, Hawai'i splits final two games and finishes 8-8, Nevada defeats LA Tech and finishes 8-8
No. 6 - NMSU, Idaho and Nevada each finish 8-8, Hawai'i finishes 9-7.
No. 6 - NMSU loses to Nevada and finishes 8-8, Nevada, Idaho and Hawai'i each finish 9-7
