RUNNIN’ REBELS HOST BOISE STATE WEDNESDAY IN RED OUT


5,000 red t-shirts, along with 3,000 water bottles (SNWA) will be given away at 8 p.m. game at Thomas & Mack Center


The UNLV men’s basketball team will return home to host Boise State on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center. 

The game will be a “Red Out,” with UNLV encouraging all fans to come to the TMC wearing red. The Runnin’ Rebels will also be in their red uniforms. 5,000 red t-shirts will be given away in addition to 3,000 water bottles (courtesy of SNWA).

There will also be a moment of silence in remembrance of Freddie “Machine Gun” Thompson just prior to the game. Thompson was a former Runnin’ Rebel player, local high school coach and father of Boise State’s Mikey Thompson. Freddie Thompson died of pancreatic cancer last April.
After winning each of its first three games under Interim Head Coach Todd Simon, the Runnin’ Rebels (12-8, 3-4 MW) are coming off a loss in their last game, at Nevada, Reno (65-63) on Saturday. UNLV has lost its four Mountain West games this season by a combined eight points.

The Runnin’ Rebels were 9-4 during its non-conference season, playing three top-15 teams. UNLV went 2-1 in such games recording wins vs. then-No. 13/14 Indiana at the Maui Invitational and vs. then-No. 15/16 Oregon at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The loss was at then-No. 13/12 Arizona.

Boise State (15-5, 6-1 MW) has won two in a row and 12 of its last 13 games with its only loss over that span coming at home to San Diego State by three points. The Broncos won 81-71 at Wyoming on Saturday.

Wednesday’s game will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network with Carter Blackburn and Pete Gillen calling the action. Jon Sandler and Robert Smith will handle the UNLV radio broadcast, which may be heard live on ESPN Radio 1100 AM/100.9 FM.
