Rough week doesn't deter Rebels resolve

Last week was a difficult week for our program. I thought we played well for a majority of the Texas Christian game on Feb. 14 and just didn't do a good job down the stretch. Any time you give up 19 offensive rebounds, it is difficult to win a game...

Relia-Bull: Consistency key for high-watt UNLV senior

Hard times have befallen the UNLV men's tennis team, but no one's blaming Alex Bull. Bull, a senior left-hander from London, has remained reliable and consistent since joining the team, both with his aggressive play and his high level of enthusiasm...

Rebels regroup for stretch run

By immersing himself in Twitter, junior guard Anthony Marshall has sought to develop a strong connection with UNLV basketball fans, for better or worse. Most times, Marshall enjoys the interaction. But last week represented the worst of times, and...

League title run ends for UNLV men's swimming

The UNLV men's swimming team made a run at the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships, but watched its seven-year league title streak end Saturday. UNLV finished second with 603.5 points in the meet at East Los Angeles College in Monterey...

Lady Rebels overcome sluggish start

Not everything in pink is pretty. Clad in special breast cancer awareness uniforms, the UNLV women's basketball team looked downright ugly for the first 17 minutes Saturday. Thanks to junior point guard Mia Bell, the Lady Rebels survived a first-...

Lobos grab UNLV, MWC race by throat

The message a week ago was about climbing back on course, about again controlling one's destiny, about going out and winning an outright regular-season conference basketball championship for the first time since 1991-92. The reality today: UNLV is closer to fourth place than first.

Fresh arms key to Rebels' success

The talent UNLV will put on the mound this season almost can't be disputed. It's the inexperience that is the question, the main obstacle between a so-so season and one that extends beyond the Mountain West Conference Tournament. To build on the 33...

Rebels not only ones with issues on road

I must have been 5 or 6 years old when I first became aware of the home-court advantage. It was Easter, and I was huddled around our new color Sylvania TV set with siblings, and Dorothy was clicking the heels of her ruby red slippers together and...

Present, future has UNLV men's golf program excited

While those who follow the UNLV men's golf program can't wait for the calendar to turn to 2013, they would be remiss to overlook the 2012 spring season. Coach Dwaine Knight has a much-heralded recruiting class waiting in the wings for next season...

Sense of urgency eludes UNLV away from home

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Living on the edge as the clock ticks down is obviously not the way UNLV coach Dave Rice wants every road trip to go down. But that has been his life on the road. A two-point loss at San Diego State. Overtime victories at Boise...

Merger's about TV deal, not football

I'm usually not a big change-for-the-sake-of-change guy. It's a concept that often lacks improvement and imagination. You don't learn anything from it. But if it leads to a better television contract for those Mountain West Conference teams about to...
