The Nevada basketball team will enter the Mountain West Tournament as the No. 14 team in the nation.

The Wolf Pack moved up three spots in Monday's AP Top 25 following wins over Air Force and San Diego State that clinched a share of the MW title.

Nevada (28-3, 15-3 MW) is ranked the second highest in program history going into its conference tournament, the only better ranking being 10th prior to the 2007 WAC Tournament.

The Wolf Pack, which has the top seed in the MW Tournament, will play the winner of the Boise State-Colorado State game. Nevada kicks off play Thursday at noon at Thomas & Mack Center.

Here is this week's entire AP Top 25.
