Lady Rebels looking for the season sweep and the three points in the Governor’s Series, all tickets just $2

There is no shortage of storylines for UNLV’s women’s basketball game against in-state rival Nevada, Reno, which tips off at 3 pm on Saturday. And it all begins with guard Kelli Thompson, who will play in the Cox Pavilion for the final time as the Lady Rebels will recognize their lone senior prior to the start of final home game of the regular season. Tickets are just $2 for any fans wearing red to the contest, while kids 12 and under are always free at UNLV women’s basketball game. A senior celebration will also follow the contest, starting 30 minutes after the game is over.

Saturday’s game is key in both the Mountain West and Governor’s Series standings. The Lady Rebels are looking to claim their seventh league win of the year, which would keep them in the top half of the MW.
