  1. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    No, nothing was going to get better there as well. DR couldn't develop what talent he recruited, had next to zero people skills and couldn't even begin understand how to inspire hard work or dedication. He was/is a good assistant but that is about it. He had his shot.

    You would know.
  3. Marvin Menzies is a Joke

    Remember just a short 2 year ago when UNLV started conference with 3 losses, FSU at the T&M - @CSU - @Wyo. CDR was immediately fired. Now 3 straight home losses to start conference. I know the typical excuses though... this is only the 1st "Real Year", Last year didn't really count "They are a young team". Is there anybody that expects anything to change? This team looks exactly like last year. EXACTLY, except for scheduling a 200+ SOS in OOC.. I'm not even emotional and the loss really doesn't matter in the grand scheme. What does matter though is that I still don't see anything changing or being built. I will officially declare this season a failure. I see zero signs of optimism for the future as well.

    Well with the news today he can call his own shots the remainder of the season. Maybe this will get real for him now but we will need to wait and see.
  5. UNLV men's basketball freshman forward Brandon McCoy is on The John R. Wooden Award presented by Wendy's Midseason Top 25 list, which was announced Thursday by the Los Angeles Athletic Club. The list will be featured tonight on ESPN2 at 10 p.m. PT. The award is the most prestigious individual honor in college basketball, presented annually to the top player in the country. McCoy is one of just six freshmen on the list. He is also one of just five players to debut on the midseason list after not appearing in the preseason top 50 and is the only player from the Mountain West to earn the nod. The Chicago, Illinois, native has led the Runnin' Rebels to a 13-4 overall record this season, and is tops in both scoring (19.2 ppg) and rebounding (9.9) rpg. McCoy, who was named the Mountain West's Preseason Freshman of the Year, has earned conference player of the week honors twice this season and has recorded 10 double-doubles on the year (ninth in the nation). He is shooting 61.9 percent from the field. McCoy is the first Runnin' Rebel to be included on the Wooden Award's Midseason Top 25 list since Mike Moser and Anthony Bennett appeared on it in back-to-back years in 2012 and 2013. Larry Johnson is UNLV's only winner of the Wooden Award (1991). http://www.unlvrebels.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/011118aaa.html

    1st game in weeks where he did try...a little. After fouling out I would bet that he backs off even more. If so he needs to back up in the rotation also. He is playing with the tried and true "just get your offensive numbers so you get drafted" game plan from what I've seen this past month. Totally different guy from who he was in November.

    I'm talking about foot speed on the defensive end. Way too many times when they get behind a bit when the opposing guard makes a move they just give up and let the guy blow by maybe expecting the big behind them to make a stop. If that big is McCoy the oppossition guy just has an open layup or floater at the rim. Every team in the conference knows that if they can get a good 1st step then they will get a very short high percentage shot.

    Well based on my previous critique: Good use of the bench in the game to mitigate the altitude. 1st time this group was that high. Cudos Marv. Good rotation and pulling guys after bonehead plays or turnovers. More effort from McCoy on defense says that there was a quiet conversation somewhere in the past few days. More effort from the remaining team last night, especially Mooring and Clyburn. Beck has shown all year that he has earned more PT. I'd like to see him and Juiston on the floor together at times and push penetration. Moving forward need to take the rotations apart and put them back together again. Build on last night. Keep Mooring at the 2 exclusively and left him get settled in and focused. Work on backside and help defense. Get the bigs rotating and a little foot speed. If you don't work on defense then polish the bench with your backside. Get more foot speed from guards also to stop or at least slow down opposition guard penetration. No more Ole or go sit on the bench. Effort, effort, effort and rotate. In November we had 4 guys going after every rebound, now it's 1 guy...maybe. That is all about laziness. Get 3 or 4 going after every ball and take away back those possesions or route a guy off of the bench who will.

    MWC needs to move the tournament out of the T&M. We are severly at a disadvantage.

    Well at least McCoy was around enough plays to get fouled out.
