UNLV men’s basketball head coach Dave Rice is entering his fourth season at the helm of the Runnin’ Rebel program. He has led UNLV to 71 wins over his first three years, which ranks second all-time at UNLV only to Hall of Fame coach Jerry Tarkanian (73 wins in his first three seasons in Las Vegas).
Under Rice, UNLV has won at least 20 games all three seasons and has played in two NCAA Tournaments (including earning its highest seed in 22 years). In addition, his teams have recorded seven victories over ranked teams, including one over the nation’s No. 1-ranked squad (North Carolina in 2011).
The Runnin’ Rebels recorded an overall mark of 20-13 last season and have a streak of 20 or more wins in each of the last eight years.
This year’s team welcomes eight new players to the 2014-15 roster. The 2014 recruiting class has been ranked as the fourth-best in the country by Rivals.com, only behind Duke, Kentucky and Arizona, and ahead of North Carolina, Louisville, Kansas, UCLA, Georgetown and Maryland.
