UNLV Basketball: Run, Rebels, Run to Showcase New Squad

Are you ready for the new season, new look Runnin' Rebels?

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

UNLV athletics wants Runnin' Rebel fans to amp themselves up for a fresh season with the new look Rebels. This year's team is stacked with talent from front to back court.  With a combination of new, transfer, and seasoned players, this year should be a display of Vegas style entertainment.  Don't believe me?  Just watch the Vegas-inspired promo.

The key players for this years squad are incoming freshman Stephen Zimmerman, Derrick Jones and Jalen Poyser. Jones is likely to be out of this scrimmage as he has a severely sprained ankle.

As for the transfers they are Ben Carter from Oregon and senior guard Jerome Seagears who transferred from Rutgers. UNLV also has senior guard Ike Nwamu who is a graduate transfer from Mercer, plus forward Chris Obekpa is practicing with the team but redshirting after transferring from St. John's in August.
