UNLV (10-7, 4-1) is off to its first 4-1 start in Mountain West play in seven years and will be looking for a season-series sweep of the Lobos as it won 80-69 at The Pit earlier this month on Jan. 8.
It is Coaches vs. Cancer Week and the coaching staffs will be wearing suits and sneakers during the game in an effort to raise awareness and help save lives by raising funds for the American Cancer Society. Fans are encouraged to wear black and free UNLV tuxedo T-shirts will be given away to the first 500 season ticket holders in attendance and the first 250 general fans.
New Mexico (9-9, 3-3) is coming off an 83-53 home win over Wyoming on Saturday, which snapped a three-game losing skid. The Lobos are 4-3 in their last seven games and are led in scoring by Anthony Mathis’ 15.9 ppg.
Tuesday’s game will be televised on CBS Sports Network with Carter Blackburn and Pete Gillen calling the action. Jon Sandler, former Runnin’ Rebel Robert Smith, and Steve Cofield (sideline reporter) will handle the UNLV radio call, which may be heard live on ESPN Radio 1100 AM and online via the UNLV Gameday App and TuneIn (link at UNLVRebels.com).
