    Taking Care of Business

    By Mike Grimala

    Anything less than a dominant, wire-to-wire throttling of Division-III La Verne would have raised eyebrows, but the Rebels took care of business on Thursday, cruising to a 91-44 win. For the second game in a row, Anthony Bennett set a career best in points, pouring in 27 in just 24 minutes. La Verne simply had no one capable of even getting in Bennett's way, and the Rebels were not shy about exploiting the advantage. UNLV def. La Verne, 91-44

    As we covered on Wednesday, UNLV's matchup with La Verne is basically a mid-season exhibition game. It will count toward the Rebels' regular-season record, but won't affect their RPI rating one way or the other. So what do the Rebels stand to gain from playing the Division III school at this point in the season? Let's take a quick look at some of the storylines.

    Rebels Looking to Tinker Against La Verne

    By Mike Grimala

    What do we know about La Verne? Enough to realize that Thursday's matchup at the Orleans Arena is little more than a mid-season tuneup. No offense to the fine students, faculty and administrators of La Verne, but don't expect much of a challenge from the Leopards. La Verne is a Division III school that has MIT and Cal-Tech on the schedule, so while they may be able to best the Rebels in a robotics competition, I doubt they have a formula for stopping Anthony Bennett.
