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!
