Only the first 100 spectators attending Saturday’s “Rise ‘n’ Shine with the Lady Rebels” fanfest at Cox Pavilion were promised a free continental breakfast. But everyone went home with a powdered-sugar-and-milk mustache.
They had a party as the Rebels kicked Jimmer Fredette and then-No. 12 Brigham Young to the curb Saturday afternoon. When they left, UNLV led the Far West, which is what the sports writers back east call the Pacific-10, Mountain West, Western Athletic Conference and Gonzaga, in basketball attendance.
Don’t be misled by coach-speak that suggests every game is as important as the next.
It’s nights like Tuesday that I thought I would miss Joe Scott.
