The Cougars and Utes collected 46 points and four first-place votes apiece to capture the top spot in the poll. UNLV, last year's MWC Tournament Champion, collected 37 points to earn the third spot. San Diego State was picked to finish fourth with 29 points, followed by New Mexico fifth with 23 points.
