San Diego State earned the No. 4 seed in the Reese's Mountain West Basketball Championship, the league announced late Saturday night. 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.

The Aztecs, who are 18-9 all-time at the MW Championship, faced the Broncos in the quarters last season and pocketed a three-point win after Jamaal Franklin nailed a three-pointer at the buzzer en route to a league-record fourth straight finals appearance. This year, SDSU and BSU split the season series and San Diego State owns a 5-1 all-time advantage over the Broncos.
