March 13, 2013 (San Diego)-- San Diego State University men's and women's basketball teams head to Las Vegas this week for the Mountain West Tournament before what they hope are deep runs in the NCAA Tournament.

The women's basketball team has won its second consecutive league title.

The San Diego State women's basketball team captured the outright league title for the second year in a row, matching the program's second-longest winning streak at 15 games and tied for the second-best conference record ever in MW history. They enter this week's Reese's Mountain West Basketball Championship as the No. 1 seed and will square off against either Air Force or Nevada in the quarterfinal round on Thursday, March 14, beginning at noon inside the Thomas & Mack Center.

The men's team earned the No. 4 seed in the MW tournament. The Aztecs will face the fifth seed, Boise State, for a second straight season.

SDSU and BSU will hit the hardwood on Wednesday in the final quarterfinal game of the day. Tip time is set for 9 p.m. PT inside Thomas & Mack Center on the campus on UNLV and will be televised on CBS Sports Network. The winner will advance to Friday's semifinal, which is set for 6 p.m. PT, and will be against the winner of top-seeded New Mexico and the winner of the 8-9 game between eighth-seeded Wyoming and the nine-seed, Nevada.
