Lady Rebels Face Aztecs Saturday

Feb. 11, 2012

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) -

Taking on the first place team on their home court isn’t the most ideal way to attempt to break a losing streak, but that’s the situation the Lady Rebels find themselves in on Saturday. UNLV, tied for third place in the Mountain West at 5-3, will look to bounce back from losing two straight games for the first time this season when it faces San Diego State (7-1 MW) at 2 pm in Viejas Arena.

Saturday’s game is also the first of four breast cancer awareness games UNLV will play in this year, and the team will wear white so that SDSU can play in special pink jerseys.

The first meeting this year between the two 17-win squads would go into overtime, with the Aztecs coming away with the 66-62 victory. For UNLV to earn a split of the series, it would require a win on the Aztecs’ home court for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
