With less than two minutes remaining in the first half of the UNLV basketball team’s NCAA Tournament opener against Illinois, junior forward Chace Stanback aggressively drove the ball to the basket and scored while being fouled. He proceeded to convert the 3-point play, but it was too little too late as the Rebels were already trailing by 20 points. Yes, it was that bad, especially on the offensive end. UNLV went seven minutes without scoring a point in the first half, ultimately surrendering a 15-0 run during the drought in losing 73-62. In a nutshell, it was an ugly and embarrassing end to the season.
