Not everyone can play on a winning team in college basketball. After all there are only so many victories out there to be had. However, there are always still players worth recognizing on losing teams, even if they don't always get the national publicity they deserve. Welcome, to the All-Great Player, Bad Team Season roster.
It's one thing to coach Army or Navy in the Patriot League. It's quite another to coach Air Force in the Mountain West Conference, where UNLV is signing lottery picks and the Falcons are mostly limited to trying to enroll low-major prospects with no medical red flags.
Last season, San Diego State had to share the Mountain West Conference regular season title with Boise State. This season, look for the Aztecs to narrowly hold off the upstart Broncos and a challenge from UNLV to capture the MWC championship.
