UNLV Game Notes

♦  The Lady Rebels look to continue their hot streak as they have won six of their last seven games and currently stand in fourth in the Mountain West at 5-2, just half a game behind Boise State (6-2), who is idle on Wednesday.
♦  The two teams actually have identical overall records, but opposite league marks as UNR is 2-5 in the MW, and are looking for its first road win since Nov. 16. The Wolf Pack have struggled away from Reno this season, having dropped their past three road games by an average of 14.3 ppg.
♦ UNLV is 20-1 all-time against UNR in Las Vegas, and 20-0 in regular season action.
♦ The Lady Rebels currently rank at the top of the MW (conference play only) in several defensive categories including scoring defense, field goal defense and rebound margin.
♦ UNLV is 31-8 in league play at home (27-8 in the Cox Pavilion, 4-0 in the Thomas & Mack Center) over the past five seasons. That includes this year’s 2-1 mark.
♦  The 2019-20 UNLV Lady Rebel squad are one of the youngest and least experienced teams in the Mountain West this season after graduating four senior starters. UNLV has 10 underclassmen on this year’s squad, with seven freshmen and three sophomores, while the four-member senior class had a total of two career starts (as a Lady Rebel) entering the season.

UNLV Game Notes

UNLV LADY REBELS OPEN MW TOURNAMENT PLAY TUESDAY…

Coming off its first-ever regular season championship, the UNLV Lady Rebels look to add another trophy when they open play in the Mountain West Championships on Tuesday night in the Thomas & Mack Center. Thanks to their second-overall seed, UNLV gets a first-round bye, and will face the winner of Monday’s UNR-San Diego State contest in a quarterfinal matchup at 6 pm.

The game will be live streamed on the Mountain West with Krista Blunk and Tammy Blackburn as the talent, and there will also be a UNLV radio broadcast with the call of Adam Candee and Kevaney Martin. Both will be available through UNLVRebels.com.

The Lady Rebels have never met UNR in conference tournament play, while the last time the teams met in the Thomas & Mack Center, UNLV claimed a 67-54 victory over the Wolf Pack on Nov. 21, 2010. UNLV has met SDSU just once in the MW tournament, falling to the second seed Aztecs in the 2009 tournament.

If UNLV faces UNR, it will be looking to avenge last week’s loss that cost the Lady Rebels the chance for a solo regular season championship title. The game would also count as part of the Governor’s Series, the all-sports competition between the two schools sponsored by Barrick Gold and NV Energy. Both teams won on their home court this season, leaving Tuesday’s potential meeting as the rubber match, which if so would give all three points to the winner.

History is on the Lady Rebels’ side in their potential quarterfinal matchup, as they are 19-0 all-time against the Wolf Pack in Las Vegas. When facing the SDSU Aztecs, UNLV has won the past five meetings in Las Vegas. A win against either team would send UNLV to its third straight semifinal appearance, and would give them back-to-back 20 win seasons for the first time since 1992-93 (24-7) and 1993-94 (23-7).

UNLV is looking to end a three-game losing streak. The Runnin’ Rebels are coming off a heartbreaking loss at New Mexico (90-91) on Sunday afternoon, in which they missed three shots in the closing seconds. In its meeting earlier this season, UNLV defeated then-No. 23 UNR in Reno, 86-78, on Feb. 7. It snapped the Wolf Pack’s 16-game home win streak and was UNLV’s first win over a ranked team since 2015. 
 
Prior to its loss at San Diego State on Feb. 17, the Runnin’ Rebels had won three straight games and five of their previous six, including the victory at UNR. UNLV’s three-game win streak marked the first in Mountain West play for the Runnin’ Rebels since 2016 and the stretch of five wins in six games was its first in conference play since 2014.

UNLV
RUNNIN’ REBELS HOST NEVADA, RENO WEDNESDAY

Governor’s Series game will tip at 6:15 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center

The UNLV men’s basketball team, which had its seven-game win streak snapped on Saturday at home against Air Force (75-68), will host Nevada, Reno, on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 6:15 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center. The game is part of the Governor’s Series, presented by NV Energy, which is a head-to-head athletic and academic challenge between UNLV and UNR. The winner of the season series in men’s basketball will earn three points toward the final score. UNLV leads this year’s Governor’s Series 9-3 and won last year’s inaugural series by a final score of 37.5-10.5.

Wednesday’s game vs. the Wolf Pack will be televised on CBS Sports Network with Rich Waltz, Doug Gottlieb and Lauren Gardner calling the action. Jon Sandler and Robert Smith will handle the radio call, which may be heard on ESPN Radio 1100/98.9 FM. A radio broadcast listen link and Gametracker will be available at UNLVRebels.com.

After six straight games at home to open the season, UNLV played two road games during its “Rodeo Road Trip,” losing a close one at then-No. 2 Arizona (63-58) on Dec. 7, then beating Southern Utah on Dec. 14 in Cedar City, which started the seven-game win streak. In the loss to the Wildcats, the Runnin’ Rebels held what is now the nation’s top-ranked team to its second-lowest scoring output of the season and its third-closest game in terms of margin of victory.

Roscoe Smith, who leads the nation in rebounding average with 12.7 rpg, is tied for first in the country in double-doubles with 10. He had just one in two seasons at UConn. Smith grabbed 10 or more rebounds in the first six games of the season (now 12 of 15) with totals of 19, 21 and a career-high 22. Birch, who has seven double-doubles this season, is sixth in the country in blocked shots with 3.8 per contest. He has had double-figure rebounding totals in eight of his 15 games and has blocked at least four shots in a game eight times this season.

Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar Hosts Nevada In-State
Rivalry Football Party Featuring Specials and New Menu 

Sport your UNLV or UNR team gear and receive happy hour pricing for wine on tap and draft beer during the game while enjoying new items such as burgers, sandwiches and appetizers 

Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar is hosting a Nevada in-state Rivalry Football Party this Saturday, October 26. The game kicks off at 3:05 p.m. (PT) and customers who wear their team’s gear will receive happy hour pricing for wine on tap and draft beer during the game.

Dom’s recently revamped its menu by adding delicious burgers, tasty sandwiches and new appetizers perfect for watching a college or NFL game on one of their ten, large LCD TVs. Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar will air multiple games on Thursdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Customers can now choose between two different burgers: the Dom’s Burger consisting of ½ lb of grilled certified angus beef, smoked bacon, mozzarella, cheese avocado, lettuce and tomato; or the BYO Burger, which let’s patrons “build your own” signature creation by choosing from any of their favorite pizza toppings.

The sandwich lineup includes the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, which features crispy parmesan chicken, tangy buffalo sauce, Gorgonzola bleu cheese and red onions. The Philly Cheese Steak touts shredded Philly steak with American cheese and sautéed white onions. Dom’s Sliders are mini sandwiches that can be ordered with chicken, meatball or Philly cheese steak. Their new Meatball Sandwich is served on a rustic Italian roll and is stuffed with Gram’s secret pork, beef and veal meatballs.

New to the Dom’s appetizer list are the Gram’s Lollipop Meatballs, made from a secret family recipe of pork, beef and veal served crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Chicken Wings also make a debut on this new menu and can come dressed in either buffalo or spicy barbecue sauce. Crispy Garlic Bread and Garlic Knots are now also available.

For a limited time, Dom’s will also feature a new Fall draft brew. The Wasatch Pumpkin Ale is a seasonal blend of the finest barley, pure pumpkin, and spices.

Open seven days a week: Sunday – Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday & Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday Brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Dom’s caters to everyone with a decadent Sunday Brunch, Happy Hour and children’s menu.
