Fans were told they could ask anything they wanted, so when the mic was brought around Wednesday night at UNLV’s Coaches Caravan the questions included how men’s basketball coach Dave Rice planned to better coach free throws, what football coach Tony Sanchez will do to avoid injuries and one concerned grandmother wanted to know what the Rebels will do to get her grandson to go to games like he did with her now that he’s a UNLV student.

Friday, April 17, 2015
The vast majority of the work the Rebels have accomplished in the spring will be complete by the time the vast majority of the public will first set eyes on coach Tony Sanchez’s first team at UNLV. That’s by design, because while no time on the practice field is without its benefits, Saturday’s Spring Showcase is more about continuing the program’s positive offseason outreach and trying to transfer the energy from the practice fields to the fans than perfecting the systems the Rebels have spent more than a month working on.
