At #82 at KenPom and just 5–5 in the Mountain West, UNLV is nowhere to be seen on anybody’s NCAA Tournament projections.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t relevant to what’s going on in college basketball. Marvin Menzies is still putting his footprint on the program and the Rebels have done some good things this season.
The Reb’s best win was a blowout over Utah a couple of months back. They almost nearly took down Arizona after the Wildcats got back from the Bahamas.
But five home losses in the conference are too many. The last two losses have both come on the road, by six at Fresno State and by a bucket at Boise State, which is the second-best team in the conference behind Nevada.\
Brandon McCoy looks like a keeper but they just wonder how long he’ll stay in school. The 7’1″ freshman from Chicago is averaging 18 and 10 and shooting 60 percent from the field this season.
Nevada is expected to win the Mountain West, though those conference tournaments are never a guarantee.
The Wolfpack is the best team in the MWC, though. It came into the season with the highest expectations and it has met all of them.
Nevada is in the top-20 at KenPom, yet most bracket projections have it in an 8/9 matchup, which would be a criminal underselling job.
Of course, that would be nothing new ranking a top-tier team out of a little-known conference. Nevada can really score and it defends hard on the perimeter. It’s not one of these laid-back West Coast teams that can shoot but doesn’t play D.
That’s why I’m almost surely taking them to win a game when it comes to March and maybe two, if the matchup is right. This team has the right DNA, starting with its Head Coach Eric Musselman.
