Rebels climb to No. 12 in both Top 25 polls

The start to Mountain West play this Saturday for UNLV got a little more interesting on Monday with a bump in both Top 25 polls.

UNLV moved from No. 17 to No. 12 in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches polls. It’s UNLV’s highest ranking in either poll since the 1992-93 season.

It now sets up a match-up between two ranked teams on Saturday at Viejas Arena, as UNLV (16-2) travels to face No. 22 San Diego State (13-2) at 1 p.m.
