After a tough loss to the Nevada Wolf Pack over the weekend, the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels were able to bounce back and defeat the Boise State Broncos 87-77, handing them their second loss in the Mountain West Conference. UNLV is now 4-1 since the coaching change and is #6 in the MW after starting 0-3 in conference play. After defeating the MW #2 team in Boise State (15-6, 6-2 MW), the Rebels (13-8, 4-4 MW) has another huge opportunity to prove themselves at the Thomas & Mack Center this Saturday, 1/30, at 5pm PST as they take on the MW #1 San Diego State University (15-6, 8-0 MW) that has not lost a conference game, buy tickets here.
