UNLV’s Win Streak Ends, Lobos Defense No Where To Be Found, Rypien Hopes To Impresses, and Nevada Continues To Dominate

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Friday and you know what that means! The weekend is here and there’s no better way to celebrate then with new links!

UNLV win streak stopped in 106-88 loss at Air Force

The Rebels marched into this game against Air Force with their best record in conference play in over 20 years. But they were not able to carry this momentum into their game against the Falcons. UNLV gave one of their worst defensive performances of the season and were embarrassed. This 18 point loss is just the latest it was as been an inconsistent season to say the least. The Rebels will look to rebound against San Jose State on Saturday.

Weir contemplates next move for hapless Lobos defense

We’re all familiar with the saying “defense wins championships”. Well if that phrase still rings true, it’s going to be a long season for the Lobos. Head coach Paul Weir is at a loss for words when it comes to his defense. His team is coming off a loss to San Diego State where they gave up 97 points. It seems like no matter what defensive scheme UNM throws onto the court, it doesn’t slow down the opposing team. It’s clear that something has to change fast for the Lobos if they hope to have a successful season.

Nobody knows what to do with the Nevada basketball team

The beat rolls on for the Wolf Pack. Coming off an exciting win over Boise State, it is clear that Nevada is one of the best teams in the nation. But according to the seeding, they are looking at a lower third seed. But in another bracket, they are a 7th seed overall. So there seem to be some confusion when it comes to wear they belong. The one thing that can’t be questioned is their dominance this season.
