  1. CKK stated that he wanted to build a roster with diverse skills and abilities. Not bad, we’ll see where they are in November.
  2. Next Saturday is open practice.
  3. https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/unlv/unlv-basketball/exhibition-games-allow-rebels-an-early-start-on-practices-2617075/ UNLV basketball coach Kevin Kruger repeated an old saying from his father, Hall of Fame coach Lon, when asked about his mindset as the Rebels began practice Tuesday. “There’s no shortcut for reps,” Kruger said. The Rebels began the first of 10 practices in preparation for their three exhibition games in Canada beginning Aug. 16. By partaking in a foreign tour, the Rebels, who finished 18-14 last season, will be allotted 10 days of full practices before their exhibition games. With eight new players, Kruger said having full practices and getting to play games will help everyone get acclimated to his system. One of Kruger’s focuses during practice is to get everyone on the same page, which he feels will help his team be prepared when the games in Canada take place. “A lot of people are going to find out their roles,” freshman guard Keyshawn Hall said. “(The Canada trip) is going to help a lot. It’s going to let us know where we are coming into the season.” Through the summer, the team was allowed to practice four hours a week per NCAA rules. During those practices, Kruger said the athleticism and defensive skill set shined through.
  4. If 2 is 1 and 1 is none then 3 is just about right.
  5. Kruger has acted with purpose on all of these decisions. I expect another good hire. ASAP
  6. If they don’t dribble the ball while running down court they won’t get across half court. See I can do it too.
  7. https://lasvegassun.com//news/2022/aug/03/all-defense-experiment-tips-off-in-first-unlv-bask/ Midway through UNLV’s first full practice on Tuesday, sophomore guard Keshon Gilbert pressured an opposing ballhandler in the backcourt and forced him to lose the ball out of bounds. Gilbert turned to his teammates with a smile on his face and nodded demonstrably, as if to announce this is how the Scarlet and Gray are going to play in 2022-23. And with the collection of players Kevin Kruger has assembled, it’s a message that should go over very well. A perusal of UNLV’s roster may not reveal any high-octane scorers after the program lost Bryce Hamilton and Donovan Williams to the NBA Draft, but the squad is stocked with quality defenders at every position, and it seems everyone is on board with winning games via defensive stops. Kruger indicated that will indeed be the game plan when the season tips off.
  8. He would be more of the old title of Special Assistant to the Head Coach. No hands on with the players just an observer and consultant to the HC. He also has good ties and relations with many Vegas power brokers. Lon is just a good guy that loves Vegas and UNLV. Grandpa is enjoying his family and his life.
  9. With a real interest in Las Vegas MLB I hope the A’s stay in Oakland. We will have other and possibly better opportunities coming before long.
  10. Does that game even count as a game? If it does then ok, if not then ok. Rebels can’t take any game or team lightly. At this point everything is important.
  11. https://unlvrebels.com/news/2022/7/28/mens-basketball-runnin-rebels-to-play-three-games-in-canada-in-mid-august.aspx LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – The UNLV men's basketball program will get an early start to the 2022-23 season as the Runnin' Rebels will play three exhibition games during a six-day foreign tour in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. As part of the trip per NCAA rules, UNLV is allowed to have 10 days of practices, which start August 2. Saturday, August 13 has been designated as an open practice for fans to attend before the team leaves for Canada. The practice that day will begin at 10 a.m. in the Mendenhall Center with free admission and the team will sign autographs.
  12. I was just reading that article. I’m really looking forward to the season getting started. The stadium is great and this year’s team will be much more fun to watch.
