Katin Reinhardt started off fast in the first half of the Rebels’ 71-56 loss at Air Force on February 13. The freshman guard scored 13 of UNLV’s first 15 points, and finished the half with 15, but he wasn’t able to score after that as the second half belonged to Air Force. The Rebels have had trouble on the road in Mountain West play, losing four straight games away from the Thomas & Mack Center. The losses at Boise State and Fresno State earlier this month were especially tough, hurting UNLV’s chances of winning a conference title. With New Mexico (9-2) and Colorado State (8-2) Royal Vegas has the full suite of Microgaming Roulette casino games- so there are plenty of variants here, from the slick looking Premier Roulette to the fast European Roulette Gold with its big table limits (?800 maximum bet on the even money bets like red/black). sitting comfortably atop the MWC standings, the Rebels need to step up on the road if they want to hold off San Diego State and Air Force for third place.
Reinhardt will play a very big part in the team’s success. He’ll have to be consistent in each game for the Rebels to win. He got banged up in the Air Force game, falling on his left shoulder when he tried to avoid a charging call, and he played just five minutes in the second half—after playing 16 in the first—of the Rebels’ 72-70 win over San Diego State on February 16. His teammates will have to pitch in as well if the team expects to have a chance of getting into the NCAA tournament. With Colorado State coming to Las Vegas this week, and road games at Wyoming and UNR to follow, the Rebels must quickly find a way to come together—and Reinhardt is going to have to be a big part of it.
