2022 WAC Conference Tournament Bracket, Schedule, Odds: Will New Mexico State Reign Supreme Once Again?
The Western Athletic Conference tends to be the conference that most people forget about on the West Coast.
With the resurgence of the Mountain West and the dominance of the West Coast Conference, the WAC gets put on the backburner.
But New Mexico State has been a traditional mid-major power and Grand Canyon is quickly becoming a mid-major power after earning their first NCAA Tournament appearance in 2021.
Abilene Christian competed in the conference for the first time this season after picking up an NCAA Tournament win over Texas last year.
The WAC Tournament tips off on March 8. New Mexico State has earned the No. 1 seed once again. Seattle will also get three byes in the tournament as the No. 2 seed.
Stephen F. Austin and Grand Canyon earned two byes in the tournament as the No. 3 and 4 seeds. Sam Houston and Abilene Christian got first-round byes as seeds No. 5 and 6.
