, and the 12th-ranked Rebels will look to reverse the fortunes following five straight losses to San Diego State. UNLV had nearly 10 days of preparation for the conference opener and San Diego State has played six-straight weak opponents since early December.
Fairway Jay: “I like the Rebels to get redemption and push the pace in victory. Transfer Mike Moser is having a terrific season and gives them great strength inside with over 11 rebounds per game. And swingman Chace Stanback is a sharp shooter and also delivering big in his senior season. The Rebels are an experienced and together team and also one of the top 2-point shooting teams in the nation. They are very efficient on offense and defense, where they hold opponents to less than 42% shooting inside the arch; also top-20 in the nation. The combination of better defense and rebounding along with solid shooters, experience and much motivation should get them the road win in a tough environment.”
