This Tuesday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the Colorado State Rams and the UNLV Rebels. This game will take place at the Thomas & Mack Center at approximately 10:30 P.M EST.
UNLV Looks To Get Back To .500
The UNLV Rebels have looked like a slightly below average college basketball team up to this point in the season. The Rebels have lost 14 of their first 27 games but they enter this game on a high note as they were able to beat New Mexico on the road in its last game by five points. In that game, UNLV's offense was amazing at it scored 78 points while shooting 50.0% from the floor. Now, UNLV will be looking for another home victory on Tuesday. In addition, this game is particularly important for the Rebels considering the fact that they will get back to a .500 record if they are able to get this victory in front of their home fans.
Leading the Rebels offensively is sophomore guard Bryce Hamilton who has looked good this season as he is averaging a team-high 15.3 points per game along with 5.2 rebounds. However, he is also shooting just 28.0% from the three-point line so he has struggled with his shot from behind the arc.
UNLV's most underrated player is junior centerCheikh Mbacke Diong who has looked pretty good this season as he is averaging 7.9 points per game along with a team-high 8.2 rebounds. In addition, he is shooting 52.6% from the floor so he has been pretty efficiently offensively up to this point.
