Thanks Rob for the great news!

Thank the coaches and Bryce obviously was raised properly so thank his parents.

When Arkansas, Kentucky, UCLA etc. are offering scholarships and you choose UNLV you know the guy is a true Rebel.

So what is the starting five look like now?

2021/22 UNLV Starting Five

Jordan McCabe/Keshon Gilbert

Mike Nuga/Justin Webster/Josh Baker

Bryce Hamilton/Donovan Williams

Royce Hamm Jr/Victor Iwaukor

David Muoka

 

I think I would go with:

Keshon Gilbert, Mike Nuga, Justin Webster, Bryce Hamilton and Royce Hamm Jr.

This should lock up 20+ wins for Kruger's first season.  Nice start for his career.

I think Dave Rice won 26 games his first year but that number got worse each year after that.

Kruger should be just the opposite. Start at 20+ and build it to 30+ in a few years.

Chance for some big wins at home in Vegas vs. UCLA, Cal, Arizona/Michigan!

We will actually be able to put a team on the floor of all Four Star players if we wish to do so.

Jordan McCabe (4 Star)

Bryce Hamilton (4 Star)

Donovan Williams (4 Star)

Victor Iwaukor (4 Star)

Royce Hamm Jr. (4 Star)

Should be a fun first year for the Kevin Kruger era and things will only get better!

Report: Bryce Hamilton returning to UNLV basketball

https://lasvegassun.com/news/2021/may/28/report-bryce-hamilton-returning-to-unlv-basketball/

The 6-foot-4 guard will be just the third holdover from last season — but, the most crucial. He went from averaging 4.3 points per game as a freshman in 2018-19, to scoring 16 points per game as a sophomore in 2019-20.

2020-21 he was 17.9 Ppg, 6 Reb, 3 ast, 1.3 Stl, while shooting 43%.

That is quite a gain back to this team. We now have a solid core of guards both point and shooting. This will be one of the most athletic teams that we’ve had in years. Also compared to recent history the most experienced.

I like the roster construction from this new staff and rookie HC. Good job CKK.

I think Nuga or Gilbert should start at PG.. Bring McCabe in as a sub to be the floor general for the 2nd team.

Nuga

Webster

Hamilton

Williams

Hamm Jr.

That could be a nice lineup with some solid studs off the bench!  Still excited to see if we get a big guy or Reeves (OU) with the 13th spot!

The MWC is on it’s way back up the ladder. There are 3 or 4 teams making moves back to relevancy. If UNLV can put things together and contribute again the conference as a whole could gain notoriety and maybe a few more buck$. A respectable UNLV brings more national attention than everyone here except maybe SDSU.

MWC needs UNLV, New Mexico and SDSU to be Top 25.

Nevada, Colorado State and Boise to be Top 50.

Fresno, Wyoming and Utah State to be Top 100.

SJSU and Air Force are what they are.

This is realistic goals for the conference.

You nailed it.  Bryce's mom deserves a lot of credit.

Prefer 2 forwards but if they go 4 guards, I like McCabe starting over Williams.

I think Bryce will be the first four year player since Carlos Lopez-Sosa. I can't believe it has been that long.

Diong has 4 years and is a grad.
