Almost 48 full hours before tip-off, No. 14 UNLV’s crucial Saturday home tilt against No. 13 San Diego State officially sold out.
In what will likely be the biggest home game of the season for the Rebels (21-4 overall, 5-2 Mountain West), a crowd of more than 18,500 will be on hand. This is UNLV’s second sell-out of the season, with the first coming on Jan. 21, when the Rebels knocked off New Mexico, 80-63. Now, UNLV is hoping to once again tie itself with SDSU (20-3, 6-1) atop the Mountain West standings as the league’s second half gets underway.
