UNLV Ranked No. 9 In SB Nation's Basketball Power Poll


LAST WEEK: Beat USC (66-55); Beat North Carolina (90-80) THIS WEEK: At UC-Santa Barbara (Nov. 30) A fast pre-New Year's start highlighted by a signature win over a highly-ranked opponent is something we've seen multiple times from UNLV over the past handful of years. On each previous occasion, the Rebs have faded after the calendar change. This year's team appears to have the talent and experience to buck that trend, but a road game at a dangerous UCSB squad on Wednesday does present an immediate opportunity for a letdown.
