  1. Missed most of game, usual pre-game bar festivities held at Paradise Cantina on 4480 S Paradise road(Alumni owned and operated)didn't have the game on versus!Spent the next 35 minutes looking for the game in casinos and bars finally found it @ the Rio Hotel. Caught the last five minutes ...impresive close out game. UNLV snaps another conference opponets home win streak(BYU last year).
    My impression; the boys are getting there freshman are growing up quickly Kendall(Bird), Shaw(Feathery) and Tre(Silky, great stutter step) are money, and Jasper(DJ)Masmaba(Big Papi) and Chace all played well...No easy task to win in the"Pit" congrats boys....Fans need to come out and support the Rebels vs. SDSU they look good no easy opener.Paradise Cantina is a Great pre-game bar to go to that I highly recommend with great Rebel atmosphere and an easy walk to the TM! See ya in Red! Go Rebels!

  2. Those photos are freakin' awesome. Great job Justin Bowen.
    The one with the boys running up the tunnel after the game captures their elation superbly and Kendall rising up and releasing his shot with the New Mexico bench in the background shows the opponent's feelings of helplessness as UNLV drives home the dagger.
