Rebels quick hits:

Findlay Prep forward Anthony Bennett has trimmed his list to two — UNLV and Oregon.

Just a few days after cutting Florida from his final four school choices, Bennett has now cut Kentucky out of the picture, according to his AAU coaches.

Bennett made an unofficial visit to UNLV last week with his mother, who was in town for Findlay's graduation. His coaches said the possibility to contribute right away was a factor in trimming his list, as both the Rebels and Ducks have more of a need at the power forward spot than do the Wildcats.

Former AAU teammate Khem Birch has reportedly been selling Bennett hard on staying in Las Vegas, and the team's scheduled preseason trip to Canada in August doesn't hurt the Rebels' chances, either. Bennett is expected to make a decision in a week or so.
