Former Long Beach State head coach Max Good was hired this week as a special assistant to UNLV head coach Dave Rice, bringing to the Rebels a veteran presence the team has desperately needed since Rice assumed control of the program in 2011.
Max Good makes his return to UNLV and will serve in a non-coaching role on head coach Dave Rice’s staff.
An early season trip to Hawaii highlights the UNLV women’s basketball schedule released Thursday.
The UNLV men’s basketball team will be spending New Year’s Eve in Laramie, Wyo.
The Mountain West men’s basketball tournament championship will be a stand-alone event on Saturday, March 14 at the Thomas & Mack Center. The women’s final was moved up to a day earlier.
Tears were not streaming down Khem Birch’s face. There was no reason to get carried away. But he was getting emotional and feeling sentimental, even about a basketball game in July.
The way Mike Moser sees it, he has five chances to impress the Boston Celtics. That’s how many games the team will play in the NBA’s Orlando Pro Summer League.
It requires the assembly of numerous small, often oddly shaped, interlocking pieces. When the puzzle that is the Rebels of next season is finished, it’s a good bet Cody Doolin will have defined a fairly significant piece.
Summer in Las Vegas should be renamed “Hoops Central.” Between USA Basketball, NBA Summer League, AAU Tournaments and the Desert Reign Summer League, there’s plenty of basketball to keep the basketball lovers, like myself, busy.
In February, when Rashad Vaughn announced his commitment to UNLV, he mentioned next season’s schedule as an attraction. He was looking forward to playing against Duke, Arizona and Kansas. It was part of coach Dave Rice’s sales pitch.
Khem Birch was not picked Thursday in the NBA Draft, but the former UNLV forward picked his spot less than 24 hours later. He is signing as a free agent with the Washington Wizards.
It’s too late to go back now, but another year of college basketball probably would have served Khem Birch better. Still, staying for his senior season did not help Deonte Burton.
When rolling the dice two months ago, Khem Birch was hoping to land somewhere in the second round of the NBA Draft. The odds seem to be turning slightly in his favor.

Deville Smith is not returning to the UNLV basketball team for his senior season, it was confirmed Thursday after more than a week of speculation. Smith was the team’s No. 5 scorer with an average of 9.7 points and ranked second in assists (87) and 3-pointers made (45).
It took more than a year for UNLV’s recruiting class to come together. As soon as Jordan Cornish put the finishing touch on it, his first phone call was to a close friend halfway across the country. Rashad Vaughn, the Rebels’ highest-ranked incoming recruit, also proved to be a valuable recruiter.
Bismack Biyombo went ahead of him. So did Jimmer Fredette and Markieff Morris and Alec Burks. Fourteen names were called during the 2011 NBA Draft before Kawhi Leonard made his way to the stage for a congratulatory handshake from then-commissioner David Stern.
The UNLV basketball team’s roster turnover continued Wednesday with the addition of former Rutgers guard Jerome Seagears.
