The Maui Invitational was a chance for UNLV to boost its strength of schedule and get challenged and that will now just sort of happen after their loss against UCLA in the opening round.
There are still one more quality opponent for UNLV but first they must play host Chaminade who played Kansas and lost 123-72, which was expected by playing the fifth ranked team in the country. The Rebels missed a big opportunity by not beating a very UCLA team who showed their weakness in playing against the zone defense and their youth showed in their first big test of the season.
The Maui Invite gives us day basketball during Thanksgiving Week -- is it still being called Feast Week as ESPN used to brand this time of year?
