Lady Rebel Round-Up Tournament Notes ♦ UNLV will be looking to win the tournament for the second time in the past three years. ♦ The Lady Rebels are 26-8 all-time against UCSB. The last time the teams met though was in December of 2011, when current assistant coach Mia Bell hit a driving jumper at the buzzer for a two-point win in Santa Barbara. ♦ Looking at potential opponents on Sunday in the consolation or championship game, UNLV has never met Dartmouth before in women’s basketball, while in the lone meeting with Middle Tennessee, the Blue Raiders claimed an 85-82 overtime win in the consolation game of the Las Vegas Club Shootout on Dec. 6, 1998.
