    Survive and Advance: UNLV enters postseason staring down tough draw in MWC tournament

    Lots of chatter going both ways, lots of little elbows and nudges, lots of fouls. That pretty much sums up the intensity on the floor from last Saturday's 74-63 UNLV triumph over Wyoming in the regular season finale. Don't expect a whole lot to change on Thursday when the two tangle in the 8:30 p.m. nightcap of the Mountain West Conference tournament's quarterfinal round at the Thomas & Mack Center. "We like the physicality," junior guard Justin Hawkins said. "It made us step our game up another notch. I feel when it came to that, we really stepped up."

    Wallace, seniors go out with a bang in 74-63 victory over Wyoming

    Never again will a scream in the face from Mike Moser or an accidental kick in the back from Reggie Smith feel so good for Kendall Wallace. The reaction from the UNLV bench came in the midst of the signature moment of Wallace's frustrating senior season — a four-point play that ultimately helped the Rebels pull away from Wyoming on Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center, 74-63. "I couldn't have planned it any better," Wallace said. "I'm just thankful that I got the opportunity. It was kind of like a storybook type of thing that went on today."

    As his career draws to a close, decorated senior Oscar Bellfield wants a proper ending

    As his college career comes to a close, Oscar Bellfield is reminded of the situation he faced as a high school senior, staring down an uncertain collegiate future. Four years later, all he can do is laugh. Instead of committing to any number of mid-major programs pursuing him before his final campaign at Westchester High in Los Angeles, Bellfield decided to wait. His dream had always been to play for a Pac-10 program, and he was determined to make that a reality.

    No. 11 UNLV finally tripped up on the road in 68-66 loss to Wyoming

    The lesson this time: You can only flirt with fire for so long on the road before you finally get a bit of a burn. After making enough clutch plays to overcome stretches of poor play last week to land overtime wins at Boise State and Air Force, No. 11 UNLV found itself on the wrong side of one of those nail-biters away from home on Saturday, falling to Wyoming, 68-66, at the Arena-Auditorium.
