Lady Rebels enter postseason on high

Moments after wrapping up their best regular season in years Wednesday night, all the resurgent Lady Rebels wanted to do was look ahead. "The accomplishments we made this season just blew my mind, but it means nothing right now," UNLV senior Jamie...

Like Rams mascot, UNLV predictably makes a mess

They can tweet all the expletives they want, and they can set world-record times for getting from a morgue of a locker room to a morgue of a bus, and they can talk about being disappointed until every flake of snow has melted atop the Rockies, but UNLV's basketball team has only itself to blame for its Mountain West Conference standing today.

UNLV kicks another pebble out of its shoe

Playing Air Force in basketball is a nuisance, sort of like going for a jog with a pebble in one's shoe. Come to think of it, playing Air Force in football, with its throwback triple-option offense, is sort of like that, too. It's difficult to look...

Livengood successfully erases first impression

I still remember the handshake that would have made an NFL linebacker wince and the sort of forced smile most often directed by a girl's father to the teenage boy standing in a doorway. I still remember thinking that if Jim Livengood didn't view it...

Lopez eager to aid Rebels' stretch drive

If Carlos Lopez could, he would ask for a mulligan and start his sophomore season over. But there are no mulligans in basketball, and UNLV's 6-foot-11-inch forward from Findlay Prep by way of Puerto Rico is trying to get through a frustrating season...

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...
