Runnin' Rebels Cose Out MW's First Half Saturday

Feb. 3, 2012


Off to its best start to a season since 1991-92, the No. 11/13 UNLV men's basketball team (21-3, 5-1) has won five in a row and 12 of its last 13 games. The Runnin' Rebels, who are in a first-place tie in the Mountain West with No. 17 San Diego State, are back on the road this weekend and will close out the first half of conference play at Wyoming (17-5, 3-3) on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 2 p.m. MST/1 p.m. PST.

The game will be televised on The Mtn. with Bill Doleman and Dave Bollwinkel calling the action. Jon Sandler and Robert Smith will handle the UNLV radio broadcast, which may be heard live in Las Vegas on ESPN Radio 1100 AM/98.9 FM. The radio broadcast is also available at through the subscription-based All-Access feature, while Gametracker is provided for free on the website.

UNLV's only loss over its last 13 games was at San Diego State, by two points on a last-second shot. UNLV's No. 11 AP ranking is its highest in either poll since Feb. 8, 1993, when it was No. 10 and this week's ranking is its eighth week as a ranked team this season, its highest total number of weeks in the polls since 1992-93.

The Runnin' Rebels are 28-14 all-time against Wyoming and have won their last two games in Laramie and three of the last four.
