RUNNIN’ REBELS BACK AT THOMAS & MACK CENTER WEDNESDAY VS. ASU
7 p.m. game will mark first for UNLV on its home floor in 2.5 weeks
After going 2-1 on its annual “Rodeo Road Trip,” the UNLV men’s basketball team will return home to the Thomas & Mack Center for the first time in about two and a half weeks to host Arizona State on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m.
The Runnin’ Rebels are coming off a 73-62 road win at UC Riverside on Saturday. Prior to that, they dropped a close one at preseason top-10 Wichita State (56-50) on Dec. 9 after defeating two top-15 teams in a span of three games. Against UNLV, the Shockers extended the nation’s third-longest home win streak to 35 games and also the country’s second-longest non-conference home win streak to 34 games.
UNLV (8-2) defeated then-No. 15/16 Oregon, 80-69, on Dec. 4 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and two games prior to that was victorious over then-No. 13/14 Indiana, 72-69, at the Maui Invitational on Nov. 25.
The loss at Wichita State snapped UNLV’s four-game win streak, which was the program’s longest in two seasons. The Runnin’ Rebels have now won five of their last six.
ASU (6-3) is coming off a 72-58 loss at then-No. 5/4 Kentucky on Saturday, which snapped a three-game win streak by the Sun Devils.
Wednesday night’s game will be televised nationally by CBS Sports Network with Carter Blackburn and Steve Lappas calling the action, while Jenny Dell will be the sideline reporter. Jon Sandler and Robert Smith will handle the UNLV radio broadcast, which may be heard live on ESPN Radio 1100 AM/100.9 FM. All internet links along with live stats will be available at UNLVRebels.com.
