Hi Rebel fans. The UNLV Rebellion has done it again with their props at basketball games. I'm sure by now you have seen pictures of KHEM KONG in the local and national news. Here's a great video by Justin Yurkanin at the Review-Journal on the creation of it.
Huge thanks to Sean Clauretie for the inspiration and dedication in making it happen. Khem loved it. In my opinion, he's played even harder the last two games to thank us for the support. He's come up with some huge blocks, some huge rebounds and we have won the last two home games.
The Rebels will play at San Jose State this Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on ESPN3.com. After that, they're back home again on Saturday night vs. Boise St. at 5 p.m. That game is on CBS Sports. I know there will be a few groups tailgating before that game. It should be a nice day for that.
The Runnin' Rebels are 13-7 (4-3 in the Mountain West) and tied for 5th in the conference with Boise St.
The Lady Rebels have been kicking butt in the conference also. They are in a tie for third place and have a home game this Wednesday at the Cox Pavilion at 7 p.m.
It's almost BASEBALL season again, my how time flies. The UNLV baseball team kicks off a 3-day, 4-game home stint with Central Michigan starting February 14. I'll be headed up to Logan, Utah for the men's basketball game against Utah State that weekend. The Utah State fans have quite a reputation and I'm looking forward to my first game at the Spectrum.
Well, Rebel fans, that's all for now. Hope to see you Saturday at the Thomas & Mack. GO REBELS!
