I’m not much of a sports fan, but it’s always thrilling when the hometown team makes good. Besides, anyone can admire the kind of courage, positive thinking, discipline and focus that go into athletics. Against all predictions of a mediocre season, the Rebels and coach Lon Kruger dazzled us with a Mountain West Conference Tournament championship last weekend. And after all the grumblings about an unfair No. 7 seed, they are doing the only thing a winner does – leaving the seeding brouhaha behind and looking forward to game 1 of the NCAA. The Rebels face Georgia Tech, seeded #10, a formidable opponent whose long-time basketball reputation has caught even my attention over the years. The opener is at 9:25 am this Friday, and can be seen on KLAS Channel 8 or followed on radio ESPN 920 AM. There are a limited number of tickets available to UNLV students and faculty/staff, to be purchased through lottery. Call 702-895-3679 for info.
