Fresno, CA (SportsNetwork. Josh Ferguson Jersey .com) - First place in the Mountain West Conference is up for grabs on Saturday, as the 25th-ranked Wyoming Cowboys drop in on the Fresno State Bulldogs at the Save Mart Center. Both teams are tied with New Mexico atop the MWC standings with four wins in five tries, but with the Lobos watching the action on Saturday before returning to the floor on Sunday versus Boise State, it opens the door for one of these teams to claim the top spot all alone for the time being. Wyoming had used a seven-game win streak to catapult into the 25th spot in the AP Poll, but chances are the Pokes will lose that designation come Monday regardless of the outcome this weekend due to the fact that they bowed to San Diego State on Wednesday night, 60-52, at home. The loss snapped a 13-game win streak in Laramie for the Cowboys. As for the Bulldogs, they are seeking a 5-1 start to conference play for the first time since the 2004-05 campaign when they were still with the Western Athletic Conference. After a rough start to the 2014-15 slate that saw them drop five in a row at one point, the Bulldogs have bounced back to even their overall mark at 9-9, thanks to a four-game win streak. Three nights ago, the team dropped a woeful San Jose State program in a 73-62 final on the road. FSU actually leads the all-time series by an 11-8 margin dating back more than four decades. The Bulldogs are a perfect 9-0 at home in the relationship, posting a 67-62 victory in their own building last season when the teams split a pair of battles. Wyoming logged a 72-66 win at home last February. Despite limiting the Aztecs to only 36.7 percent shooting from the floor overall and 5-of-17 behind the 3-point line, Wyoming still could not get over the hump and suffered its first home loss of the campaign earlier in the week. The Pokes were led by Larry Nance Jr. with 19 points and eight rebounds, both of which were game highs, while Josh Adams contributed another 14 points and five boards, but they were the only two Wyoming players to make more than just three field goals. Scoring in double figures in six straight and eight of the last nine games overall Nance Jr., the MWC Preseason Player of the Year, is producing 19.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game against the rest of the MWC. He is not only converting 62.7 percent of his field goal tries in those matchups but also 85.2 percent at the free-throw line, pushing the team to 78.3 percent success at the charity stripe in those five games. Adams pitches in with another 14.6 ppg as the team generates 63.4 ppg and holds MWC foes to 59.6 ppg. Fresno State led by just two at the break against a San Jose State program that is now a mere 2-15 on the season, but the visitors picked up the pace in the second half in order to secure the comfortable double-digit victory. Paul Watson led four players in double figures with 19 points, adding seven rebounds, while Cezar Guerrero and Marvelle Harris both dropped in 15, the latter adding six boards, four assists and four steals before fouling out. Karachi Edo made all four of his field goal tries and was 2-of-2 at the free- throw line in order to finish with 10 points in a reserve role. Harris continues to be the go-to guy for the majority of the offense this season for FSU, generating 18.3 ppg as he shoots 46.4 percent from the field and also adds 76.9 percent accuracy at the free-throw line. The do-everything player also paces the Bulldogs with his 5.2 rpg, 66 assists and 38 steals, but he needs someone else to step up and make a significant impact and that player might be Guerrero. The guard missed the first 17 games of the season due to an eligibility issue, but now he is back in action and could be the missing piece for FSU moving forward.

The St. Louis Cardinals were scheduled to arrive in Boston in time for a workout on Tuesday afternoon. Much of Mondays discussion focused on Bostons lineup considerations as the series progresses, specifically when the venue shifts to St.RALEIGH, N.C. -- Jordan McRae flew in to throw down a dunk on the break and increase Tennessees big first-half lead, then came down the floor to scream triumphantly toward the orange-clad fans near the court. Confident? Check. Enthusiastic? Yep. Maybe playing in the First Four to get the jitters out wasnt such a bad thing for these Volunteers after all. Jarnell Stokes scored a career-high 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to help Tennessee beat Massachusetts 86-67 on Friday in the second round of the NCAA Midwest Regional, earning the programs most lopsided win in the tournament in seven years. Now 11th-seeded Tennessee faces 14th-seeded Mercer, which beat No. 3 seed Duke 78-71 on Friday, in the third round on Sunday. The game is a rematch of an NIT game won by Mercer at Tennessee last year. "We didnt come into this tournament saying, OK, if we beat UMass we can play Duke. Not at all," Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said. "Our guys understand that its one game at a time. Anything happens this time of year." McRae added 21 points for the Volunteers (23-12), who had little trouble with the sixth-seeded Minutemen (24-9) in a surprisingly one-sided performance. Tennessee shot 54 per cent from the field, led by 20 points before halftime and used another strong defensive performance to shut down UMass. "We just wanted to keep our foot on the gas the whole time," McRae said. With that mentality, Martins club is building momentum at the right time of the season. "They understand and I guess they realize when you defend at the level were capable of defending at, these are the results behind it," Martin said. "Theyve really bought into it and embraced the fact that we can defend the way we defend because you can still score the ball, but scoring is a lot better when you can defend like this. "Theyre just playing with confidence as a team. Everybody understands their role and just wants to win as a family." The Volunteers had missed the past two tournaments and squeaked into this years field of 68, earning a trip to Dayton, Ohio to face Iowa in the First Four. But they controlled the boards and dominated the overtime to beat the Hawkeyes 78-65 in the programs first NCAA game since Bruce Pearls final game as coach in 2011. Martin had said he thought the win helped his Vols get the jitters out -- they didnt score until 6 minutes into that one -- while also giving them a taste of tournament intensity by fighting through a tough game. Kemoko Turay Jersey. He was right. Tennessee protected the ball against UMass pressure by committing three first-half turnovers, while Stokes and McRae led an offence that shot 52 per cent in the first half and kept coming up with press-breaking answers to turn away every spurt. "The Iowa game, we were just getting our feet wet, first time being here," said Jeronne Maymon, who had 11 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee. "Then it was time to get down to playing basketball." This was Tennessees biggest margin of victory in an NCAA game since beating Long Beach State 121-86 in the 2007 first round, which came near the start of a six-year run of tournament appearances under Pearl. Stokes 14 rebounds tied the school record for an NCAA tournament game, equaling the mark set by Isiah Victor in 1999 and Reggie Johnson in 1980. Throw in Maymons performance, and it marked the first time the Vols had multiple double-doubles in an NCAA game since 1977. Chaz Williams and Maxie Esho scored 12 points each for UMass in its first NCAA appearance since 1998. But the Minutemen fell behind by double figures early, trailed by 19 at halftime and never got closer than 10 again. "We had a couple of great practices the past couple of days, and I felt like we were going to come out great," Williams said. "But once get under these lights and the crowd starts roaring, you start second-guessing." UMass came in averaging 76 points and shooting 46 per cent, but finished well short of those numbers with much of its production coming after the Vols had seized control. Tennessee led 38-18 on McRaes first-half dunk and pushed the lead to 24 points late. "This dont even seem real right now," said sophomore Derrick Gordon, the only UMass player to have tournament experience from his previous stop at Western Kentucky. "Its just a loss that just like, Man, am I still sleeping? Reality sets in, like we really just lost and it wasnt a loss by like four points. It was a loss by double digits." It was a frustrating finish for the Minutemen under coach Derek Kellogg, who was a player during Massachusetts 1990s surge under John Calipari. He started on a team that reached a regional final in 1995 during a run of seven straight NCAA appearances for the program, but his team never gave itself much of a chance to stick around Raleigh for another game. UMass shot 42 per cent and went 3 for 11 from 3-point range.
