Beyond bragging rights, the winner earns an automatic bid for the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship tournament, also known as March Madness. You don't need cable to see these games. So put on your favorite school colors and your dancing shoes, and get ready to watch the Mountain West Men's Basketball Conference tournament online and without cable.

When is the Mountain West Men's Basketball Tournament?

The Mountain West Men's Basketball Tournament will be held on March 4-7 at The Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. There will be four rounds of the tournament, with the first three rounds split between the Mountain West Network on Stadium and CBS Sports Network. The final game will be held on March 7, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. on CBS.

The Mountain West is one ranked in the top ten of men's basketball conferences by RPI. The conference is led by #5 AP-ranked San Diego State, which is having an impressive year at 28-1, with a 17-1 record in the conference play. They are followed by Utah State, with a very good 23-8 record overall. San Diego State is expected to be a highly seeded team in the big tournament no matter what happens. However, if Utah State goes on a run, or another team upsets them both the tournament could need to drop another at large team to make room.

Watch Mountain West Men's Basketball Tournament even if you're outside the United States

It's so frustrating when you have everything you need to watch college basketball in March online, but you are taking Spring Break out of the country. You might think that you're out of luck because streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. Fear not.

There are ways to get things working again by using a VPN, which is short for "Virtual Private Network". It sends your internet traffic from far away through a specific set of servers, then pops it back into the United States.

Does a VPN sound appealing to you? It's easy to get a great one with subscription services that, for a few bucks a month, tunnel your traffic through your choice of a variety of locations. It can also give you security and peace of mind on open WiFi connections, because a VPN protects you against snoopers on any network.
