BYU Basketball: Cougars Will Face Old MWC Foe UNLV In T-Mobile Arena
There’s nothing that warms the hearts of Rebel basketball fans more than playing BYU.
Ready to hear “Reeeeeebels” non-stop?
No days off when it comes to BYU basketball scheduling news this week. Jon Rothstein from CBS and FanRag Sports continues to break news regarding the Cougar Cagers scheduling efforts.
On Thursday, Rothstein reported that BYU would be playing UNLV in T-Mobile Arena on Saturday, December 15th as part of a doubleheader in Sin City that will boast a lot of West Coast Conference flair with the Cougars taking on the Rebs and WCC rival Saint Mary’s will go up against LSU.
BYU in Vegas? Count me in!
The Rebs are not as daunting as they once were in the heydays of the Mountain West Conference and the same can be said for BYU. UNLV hasn’t been to the NCAA Tournament since the 2013 season.
The matchups between BYU & UNLV in the early days of the MWC were the stuff of legends. Kaspars Kambala, Tre’Von Willis, Odartey Blankson, Wink Adams, and other Rebels were always a thorn in BYU’s side, especially at the Thomas & Mack.
Should be fun to see a great regional matchup renewed this December.
