UNLV Rebels Schedule in 2013-14

The UNLV Rebels are ready to take a stand on their home court this season as they host some of the best college hoops teams from all over the nation. The Rebels have a roster loaded with players brimming with potential, and the team is hoping to tap into that vast potential this season and see some great results on the hardwood. The Rebels play in the Mountain West Conference, one of the more underrated leagues in college basketball. The Mountain West is much more challenging than many fans from other regions of the country know, as the conference boasts some tough teams each and every season. The Rebels know that they have to play at the highest level to be in contention for the top spot in the standings come season's end. The Rebels put together a 2012-13 season in which they posted an impressive 25-10 record and a 10-6 mark in conference play. The team is hoping to build on last season's successes and make a run at the conference crown in 2013-14. For that to occur, though, this squad is going to have to play their best ball at home when they take the court at the Thomas and Mack Center. Fans from all over the Las Vegas area and beyond are sure to pack into the stands at this arena for the biggest matchups of the season, something that will help spur the Rebels on to victory against some of their best opponents.

The Rebels know they're going to have a really tough game coming their way when the Fresno State Bulldogs come to Las Vegas this season. The Bulldogs always seem to have a few players that are in contention for the All-conference squad, and the Rebels know they're going to have to slow down these standout athletes if they're going to emerge from this contest with a win. If the Rebels can play disciplined on both ends of the floor it could be enough to take down this talented Fresno team, and that's exactly what the fans in attendance will be banking on. If the Rebels can take a victory away from this game, it could be a huge confidence boost for the players going forward.

The Rebs close out their home schedule with one of the toughest games of the season when they host the San Diego State Aztecs. The Aztecs are often one of the best teams in the Mountain West Conference, and often find themselves ranked in the Top 25 team in the nation. If the Rebs can close out their home season with a win against an opponent of this caliber there will surely be a big celebration on campus that night. Winning the final home game of the season is always important, and fans show up in a big way to support their team, but doing it against one of the best teams in the country is an added bonus.
