Scouting UNLV

UNLV is 9-3 overall and 8-1 at home. The Rebels won their first five games before losing to North Carolina (102-78) at the Food Lion MVP Classic in Charlotte, N.C. All three UNLV losses have come against nationally ranked opponents (North Carolina is ranked 14th, Oklahoma State 16th and Cincinnati third in the latest AP poll). The Rebels' lone home loss was to Oklahoma State (89-75) and its only true away game of the year was a defeat at Cincinnati (106-66). After Cincinnati, UNLV defeated High Point (72-53) Tuesday at home. The Rebels, who defeated Georgetown (85-69) earlier in the year, have won their last three home games. Two starters and five letterwinners return from last year's 16-13 team that qualified for the NIT Tournament and tied for first in the WAC Mountain Division. UNLV is sixth in the nation in scoring at 84.9 ppg, led by Kaspars Kambala (19.3), Trevor Diggs (15.9) and Mark Dickel (13.6). Danny Brotherson, a transfer from Utah Valley State College, is fourth on the team in scoring with a 9.6 average. He adds 4.8 boards per game and has four starts this season. Kambala pulls down a team-leading 8.8 rebounds and Dickel accounts for 8.5 assists per game. As a team, the Rebels shoot 46 percent from the floor, 28 percent on threes and 68 percent from the line. Head Coach Bill Bayno will miss Monday's game with BYU while serving a one-game suspension for missing a mandatory Mountain West Conference head coaches meeting on Oct. 21. Glynn Cyprien, associate head coach, will coach the rebels in Bayno's absence. Lou Kelly, a 6-5 sophomore forward from San Bernardino Valley who had resigned a national national letter-of-intent, will be eligible for Monday's game.

BYU's previous game in Las Vegas was in 1982 (52-50 Rebel win).
