You too?  I will not be buying an all-session ticket for the first time in probably 8 or 9 years.  

Yes I've been a total basketball junkie that weekend, starting with the Wednesday games, and sitting there all day Thursday. I will just be doing it a few weeks later in Phoenix, my boss got me tickets for all 3 games and all the extras as well. Food, drinks, slam dunk contest...in excited for that. The only problem I'm having is deciding which of my kids goes to what, lol, since I only have 2 tickets. They'll have to figure it out, I think.

I didn't get to see the game because of some extreme bullshit at work, but how did UNLV's zone defense fair? Did they use it the whole game? Were they able to prevent open 3PTers?

Menzies switched it up quite a bit, but Neal stuck with it the entire second half until about 1 minute left. Overall the Rebs defense looked better. 

You might still be able to watch it on espn3?

Difference between Dave RIce & staff vs Marvin Menzies & staff - under Menzies & staff we are actually seeing UNLV players improve over the course of the season. Classic example of Rice & staff doing less with more, while Menzies & staff are doing more with less

Yes. And there is a lot of experience in marvins staff, something Dave rice didn't do.

Max Good & Stacey Augmon sure didn't get much in the way of results and they had experience - Not sure what went wrong there :(

Experience trumps everything. He ran a winning program for a long time. Not saying he is going to work out. He has a lot of variables working against him, but he can coach. I am surprised he was never scooped up by a bigger program earlier.

I had decided I was not going to go to the MW tournament this year (which I always do) because I'm going to the FINAL FOUR!! :woohoo:

but I might just have to go ahead and go to both..

For the first time since its inception, I may not make the trip to Vegas this year.

OTOH...I may go just for some PAC/WAC action.

I'm a huge Alford Alford UCLA fan.

I hear you. I might "free agent" a bit. Go to some MW games, go to a PAC game...

Lady Rebs hand NM another Loss for the week.  56-42.  Two of our better players out with suspensions from the fight the other night against Utah St.  NM shooting was cold and couldn't get things going against the short handed Rebs.
