Nevada at UNLV 11/14/2011 - Rivalries

College sports are great for many reasons. One of them happens to be the idea of rivalry. Nobody wants to lose a basketball game. It is even worse when you lose to somebody down the road whose guts you cannot stand. Losing to your rival is like kissing your sister, while wearing that ugly sweater your grandmother...

Canisius at UNLV - It is what it is

First off, I have a little soft spot for Canisius. During my beginning undergrad career at Western Michigan University, I lived in a stinky house with four other guys and we set up a dynasty for college basketball on the Playstation 2 in the living room.

This write up is happening on the morning of March 26th, and the game occurred...

The Long and Winding Road

New coaches bring potential greatness. Last year is over. It's done. Old news. Players have moved on: been traded (transferred), graduated or...

Global Sports Classic, Not Global Nor Classic

In my second helping of the Global Sports Classic, or as I will refer to it through the end of next week, the American Basketball Random Game Staging, I watched UNLV defeat Jacksonville State 77-58.
