UNLV builds tournament credentials with road win over Colorado State  - AP

Rams tourney hopes take hit with home loss -

CSU Misses chance against UNLV 68-61 - CSURams official website

My take:

UNLV came out and played the same as they did against Air Force in the first half. Fortunately, the first half was forgettable and UNLV started making the 3-point baskets that previously had not been falling in.

Had it not been for the 3 pointers, UNLV would have lost this game, The Rams did not play poorly.

UNLV controlled tempo well, did not turn the ball over excessively, and the block leading to an ally-opp play was one of the most exciting of the season.

I am excited by the Rebels confidence in the three point shot, and just hope that someday soon (MWC Tourney) they can learn to shoot well in the T&M once again.

1. Hope Willis' knee isn't more than slightly tweaked, we need his production in order to win basketball games.
2. Looks like Massamba is out of the dog house, got more minutes than last game.
3. Jasper still not looking to shoot, his stat line is 0 for 0 (0 points), 1 D rebound, 2 fouls. I know the college game isn't as stat-flush as NBA, but I'd like to see the + - Jasper in/out of the game.

Looking forward to Wednesday against New Mexico at the Pit.
