    How Will Rebels Move On Without Rashad Vaughn?

    By Mike Grimala

    Rashad Vaughn declared his NBA Draft intentions on Wednesday, and it’s doubtful that anyone at UNLV was caught off guard by the announcement. Vaughn never attempted to hide his NBA ambitions or his desire to get to the pro level as quickly as possible, so this seems like the natural conclusion to his freshman year. […]

    Freshmen Lead Way in Individual Plus/Minus

    By Mike Grimala

    Jordan Cornish closed the season with a flourish, and that finishing kick is a big reason why the Rebels’ freshman ended the year with the best individual plus/minus mark on the team. Cornish’s season-long numbers may appear modest—5.5 points, 1.6 rebounds, 42.4-percent shooting in 16.3 minutes per game—but he went on a tear down the […]

    UNLV Roster Projection 0.5: 2015-16

    By Mike Grimala

    UNLV fans have had almost a week to mourn the end of their 2014-15 season, so it only seems logical to start projecting what next year’s Rebels will look like. There are still a ton of question marks in terms of roster composition—who’s staying, who’s going, etc.—but I think a preliminary projection can be a […]

    By Mike Grimala

    Dave Rice is reportedly set to meet with UNLV athletic director Tina Kunzer-Murphy on Monday to make his case for keeping his job.

    By Mike Grimala

    UNLV’s 2014-15 season appears to be over—the team reportedly declined an invitation to play in the CBI on Friday—and that means it’s time to start looking forward to next year. The Rebels were tough to figure out over the past six months, and they’ll be even harder to pin down over the next six months, […]
