UNLV closes out 2009-2010 road schedule at Air Force


Next Game



UNLV (21-7, 9-5) wraps up the road portion of its schedule at the cellar-dwelling Air Force Falcons (9-17, 1-12).  The Rebels have a week off after this game, but will need to avoid overlooking the Falcons.  UNLV sits as a 13 point favorite and an Air Force win would arguably be the biggest upset of the season in the conference.  Nonetheless, no game is a gimme and the Rebels will be looking to put together a dominant performance for the third straight game.

The Rebels remain without Derrick Jasper and Matt Shaw, and will thus be looking for some of their younger players to continue flourishing.  Freshman guard Anthony Marshall has had his share of struggles and inconsistency, but he has shown an ability to fire up the team and the crowd with some amazing athleticism.  This past Wednesday against TCU, Marshall showed a little bit of everything he brings to the table at this point.  He finished with 6 points and 6 turnovers.  He was scoreless in the first half, but in the second half he had two coast-to-coast layups, and one monster dunk.  The Saturday before against Colorado State he put up 12 points 5-for-5 shooting and 10 rebounds.  Although the team should have Jasper and Shaw back in March, a solid showing from Marshall these next few weeks could help this team go a long ways.

Air Force finds themselves in the midst of a 6-game losing streak, and have lost 12 of their last 13.  The Falcons are led by senior forward/center Grant Parker with 13.6 ppg and 4.8 rpg, and junior guard Evan Washington adds 10.7 ppg and 4.7 rpg.  The Falcons are basically looking for something to build on heading into next season.  Their top three scorers include one senior and two juniors, so I'd imagine they're looking for some of their younger talent to show something sooner rather than later.  If that doesn't happen, it may be some time before the Falcons turn this season around.

Nonetheless, Air Force can still play spoiler for a UNLV team battling for an NCAA tournament berth.  If UNLV wins this week and next week they'll be the three seed facing either Colorado State or Utah.  The Rams and Utes face off a week from today in their respective season finales, with that game likely deciding UNLV's first round opponent.
