UNLV RUNNIN REBELS RUMORS & GOSSIP
In the marquee game of the night, UNLV's Anthony Bennett used his quickness to generate a steal, and then let his basketball ability take over from there. It's no wonder he's been atop Run the Floor's Freshman of the Year watch for the past two weeks.
UNLV freshmen Demetris Morant and Daquan Cook have decided to redshirt the season.
UNLV comes into this season as one of my favorite teams. Head coach Dave Rice stepped in his first year last season and led the Runnin’ Rebels to a 26-9 record and a birth to the NCAA Tournament. What he also did his first year, was my favorite part of all. He sped the game up. I love up-tempo teams that can get up and down the floor in less than five seconds. They’re the...
As one of only a few top-100 talents left in the 2012 class nationally, and the only of those expected to qualify academically, 6′-6″ combo forward Savon Goodman was considered the last man standing in the class. He waited for awhile to kick his recruitment into high gear, taking trips to SMU and UNLV following decommitting from Villanova [...]
The best available prospect in the 2012 class, 6′-7″ power forward Anthony Bennett of Findlay Prep (NV) committed to UNLV on Saturday afternoon, announcing via his Twitter account,”Staying out west and will be going to UNLV next year.” Bennett joins a monster class for the Running Rebels, with top-50 combo guard Katin Reinhardt, bouncy big man Demetris [...]
Oscar Bellfield and Chace Stanback both scored 16 points and No. 11 UNLV pushed past Colorado State 82-63 on Wednesday night. Bellfield was 4 of 8 from beyond the 3-point line in matching a season-high for points he set earlier this season against then-No. 1 North Carolina. Anthony Marshall and Mike Moser scored 13 points each for the Runnin' Rebels (21-3, 5-1 Mountain West Conference).
UNLV sophomore Mike Moser has been named the Mountain West Men's Basketball Player of the Week for games through January 29, the league announced Monday. This is the third career weekly accolade for Moser, second straight for a UNLV player and fifth of the season for a Runnin' Rebel overall.
UNLV Runnin Rebels’ Mike Moser battled a sore throat and head cold for two days. He even vomited twice before facing off against a surprisingly tough Boise State Broncos team. Instead of packing it in, the player of the year candidate did the opposite and led the Rebels to an overtime victory. Moser cashed in 18 points and grabbed a season-high 21 rebounds as UNLV survived a feisty...
UNLV senior Chace Stanback has been named as the Mountain West Men's Basketball Player of the Week for games through December 25, the league announced Monday. This is the second career weekly accolade for Stanback and the third of the season for a UNLV player.
UNLV's Mike Moser and UCSB's Orlando Johnson nearly matched each other point for point and rebound for rebound.

Maybe someone should have told the North Carolina Tar Heels that the UNLV Runnin' Rebels have won 17 consecutive games in November, well make that 18. UNLV knocked off the nations top team and won the Las Vegas Invitational.
Led by new head coach and former player on the 1990 National Championship team Dave Rice, the Runnin' Rebels are off to a 7-0 start. After beating...
When the North Carolina Tar Heels signed up for the Las Vegas Invitational they knew the UNLV Runnin' Rebels were no pushover. Under new head coach Dave Rice the Rebels' display key traits from the 1990 NCAA Championship team that once featured players like Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon and even the head coach.
The top-ranked Tarheels previously won the LVI in 2007 and...
