Boise State's loss at Air Force and New Mexico's controversial loss at San Diego State don't help the league's chances of earning a second bid. Someone will need to knock off the Aztecs in the MWC tournament. Bubble Watch
Official statement from Mountain West
The conference released a statement regarding the controversial play at the end of regulation in New Mexico's OT loss at San Diego State: "While this was a very close judgment call made at full speed, it has been determined after careful review of slow-motion video replays the call was in fact incorrect."

I just communicated with New Mexico's Craig Neal and San Diego State's Steve Fisher on the controversial play at the end of regulation that the MWC said was mistakenly called against the Lobos. The turnover gave the ball to SDSU and the Aztecs tied the game on a 3 and won the game. UNM's Craig Neal: "We've practiced that play 100 times. My kids were demoralized in overtime. If we beat San Diego State we are 8-2 and get them back at home. That call could cost me a conference championship." Aztecs coach Steve Fisher said, "We benefited from call ,but if we go back and slow motion every close call there would be more than 1 call ruled incorrect. This was a hard fought game and I feel bad that there is now controversy. The official who made call is a teriffic ref and I feel Craig Neal would agree. It certainly is a very tough way to lose."

Wow. Wow. Game was 66-63 UNM when this call happened. Changed the game. From Mountain West: COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – With 12.9 seconds remaining in regulation in this evening's New Mexico at San Diego State game, the official covering the in-bounds play ruled the New Mexico player had not established out-of-bounds status before receiving the ball. The result was a turnover which gave the ball to San Diego State. While this was a very close judgment call made at full speed, it has been determined after careful review of slow-motion video replays the call was in fact incorrect. The New Mexico player did get one foot down (two feet are not required) out-of-bounds before receiving the ball, thus establishing his location in accordance NCAA Basketball Playing Rules 4.23.1.a and 7.1.1. By rule, the officials were not permitted to go to the monitor during the game to review this play. The Mountain West will have no further comment.
Jeremy Hemsley scored eight of his 23 points in overtime, including a go-ahead jumper in the key with 1:05 left, and San Diego State beat New Mexico 78-71 Saturday.
