Rebels Pick Up Big Win, Beat UNR

The UNLV Runnin' Rebels Men's basketball team picked up a huge win on Wednesday night, beating in state rival UNR in Reno 86-78. The Rebels' big win came on the heels of a heartbreaking loss last Saturday night in overtime at Boise State. Against UNR, guard Jovan Mooring scored 31 points and forward Shakur Juiston added 19 points and 12 rebounds. The Rebels made a statement against UNR, as the Wolfpack has dominated the series over the last couple of seasons. The Rebels improved to 6-5 in the Mountain West conference and 17-7 overall, and can move into a third place tie in the conference if they beat Wyoming, which they play tomorrow evening at 5pm at the Thomas & Mack Center. Go Rebels!
