LAS -- As a number two seed, BYU will seek to win its second consecutive Mountain West Conference tournament when play starts Thursday evening.

The Cougars (40-18, 15-5) finished second in the MWC regular season, a game behind league champion and number one seeded San Diego State. The Cougars swept a doubleheader from the Aztecs last Thursday, knocking SDSU out of the top-25.

BYU will face off against the winner of the New Mexico/Utah game played at 11:30 (PDT) Thursday morning. Utah is a third seed with New Mexico as the six seed.

Overall, the Cougars have won seven of their last eight MWC games with the only loss coming at the hands of Colorado State.

At stake for BYU is a possible berth to the NCAA Regionals set to begin next week.
