UNLV REBELS BASKETBALL FACTS:
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Stadium: Thomas and Mack Center
Conference: Mountain West Conference
Rivals: Oregon Ducks
The UNLV Rebels rose to prominence as a national NCAA basketball contender in the late 1970's after the "Hardway Eight" led the team to UNLV's first ever Final Four. During the 1976-77 season, the UNLV Rebels established NCAA records left and right, including most points in a season, most 100-point games and most consecutive 100-point games. In 1990, UNLV won the NCAA National Championship against Duke by a margin of 30 points, and it was the first time a team scored over 100 points in the championship game. The Rebels have since been a dominant program, and consistently produce winning teams that reach the NCAA Tournament.
The UNLV Rebels play their home basketball games at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The arena has a seating capacity of 18,776 for basketball events. Other events hosted at the arena include the National Finals Rodeo and the PBR World Finals. Come out and support these rowdy Rebels this season with a pair of tickets from TicketCity!

Rebels Back to Runnin Having been a rebel fan since the Tark Days I am so happy that Coach rice has brought back the runing style to UNLV. For the first time in many years the Rebels have Top Caliber players lineing uo to come play! It is going to be sad to see the four players leave the Rebels but with there leaving I beleive that the team is line to be Better!!Mike Moser will be joined by 6'9" KhemBirch a tranfer from Pitt. Also joining the team will be 6' 5" Byce Jones another transfer from USC. I am sure that that Reggie Smith will fill Oscar Belffeilds shoes. Reggie saw limited playing time this year but I'm sure he will be a key player in next years team. Reggie is again a transfer to UNLV from Marquette. Coach Rice has the Talent and player to continue the Runnin Rebels style for years to come. Seeing how it was Coach Rice's first year and the players all needed to learn and gel as a Team. As the guys get to play more together they will get much better. RIGHT NOW IT IS TIME TO " ROCK THE Thomas & Mack " as the RUNNIN REBELS begin there March to the Big Dance.
