The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels men’s basketball team won their first Mountain West Conference game this week, defeating the Lobos of New Mexico 86 – 74 at the Thomas & Mack Center. This was the Runnin’ Rebels first game with interim head coach Todd Simon leading the team after former head coach Dave Rice’s resignation at the beginning of the week. With it still being early in conference play, UNLV could be on the upswing to make a statement in the MW after defeating New Mexico who was tied for first in the conference. Their next game is at home against Air Force on Saturday, 1/16, and you can buy tickets here. While we eagerly anticipate their next tip off, enjoy the photo gallery from their recent victory below!
