The UNLV Lady Rebels and in-state rival UNR face off for the first time this season Wednesday night, as the two will tip off at 6:30 pm in Reno in the first of two regular season games in the Silver State Series, the all-sports competition between the two schools sponsored by IBEW and Nevada Donor Network.

UNLV Game Notes ♦ A year ago, the Wolf Pack won the game in Reno in the last week of the regular season, and then stunned UNLV in the MW Quarterfinals in a 77-73 double-overtime win, the first-ever loss by the Lady Rebels in Las Vegas in the all-time series. ♦ While UNR has won two straight against UNLV, the Lady Rebels have historically dominated the series with a 35-10 all-time record against their in-state rival. That includes a 16-8 record in Reno. ♦ After opening the MW season with back-to-back road games, both losses, the Lady Rebels have rebounded to win four of their last five games. All four wins were by at least nine points as well. ♦ UNLV has been showing marked improvement on defense in conference action, holding five of its past seven opponents to under 58 points. ♦ UNR has yet to win a conference game at home this season, though two losses were by a combined three points (New Mexico and Boise State).
