SILENCE NON-CHAMPION

Maybe the MWC should kick out UNLV?  They just bring the conference SOS down each year in all sports. 
 

The only thing Vegas is good for is partying, hosting conference tournaments and a bowl game that UNLV can never make. And finally the Vegas Bowl will be played in a real stadium rather than the shithole known as Sam Boyd. 

Thank god the Raiders came to town.

Look out @utenation, Frank the Tank barreling through for 190 yards again.

That was an awesome game for UNLV.  I’ll spare you the highlights and stats of the other 13 games. But you have to go back to 1979 to find a win for the Rebs before 2007. 

Utah is 12-2 with some pretty bad beat downs.

You’re about to get a full lesson in basketball on potential, the early 1990’s, top 5 recruiting classes and Vegas is the best coaching job in the west. 
 

If only it can all come together, the rest of CBB will be in absolute awe. 

There’s probably endless shrines with “1991 Final Four Champions” embroidered towels, too, I’d imagine. Kind of like the excess t-shirts they send to Africa of the losing teams.

UNLV vs Utah squabble in a Gonzaga vs Baylor title game thread.  Peak MWCBoarding...

It truly is, but I never interrupt @utenation when he goes after the Uncle Rico fan base of the MWBoard. It is God's work and has to be done.

I have them all in boxes in my garage.

Baylor put the clamps down. I didn’t expect Gonzaga offense to struggle like that. Kudos to Baylor. One of the best college teams ever perhaps

Gonzaga didn’t have a plus three point shooter other than Corey Kispert.  That is not typical for a Mark Few team.  As good as they were, I thought they had some flaws.

Shark. You realize how much money you could make just from selling this stuff to other UNLV fans on this board? 
 

Ph and Rebels18 could fully decorate their rooms in their parents basement. They already have Larry Johnson posters, Anthony bobble head dolls and never washed, slightly used Tark blankets.

Nah. I think 18 has money, but ph spends all his in Pahrump.

As this thread is supposed to be about UNLV, Baylor's effort and defensive intensity was very Tark-esque. It took me back to the good ole days.

What are you taking about? Suggs, Nembherd, and Ayayi are all decent from long.  Better 3 point shooting on this team than the 2017 team

Kispert was at 44%.  Ayayi shot 38.9%.  Aaron Cook was at 35%.  Nobody else who averaged 10+ minutes was above 35%.  Suggs - 33.7%, Nembhard - 32.3%.

Overall, Gonzaga was tied with Ohio State for team 3-point shooting at 59th (out of 347 teams), shooting 36.5% during the regular season.

The 2017 team averaged 38.2% from three (47th out of 351 teams).  Guys who averaged 10+ minutes and shot better than 35% from 3:

Killian Tillie - 47.8%

Zach Collins - 47.6%

Johnathan Williams - 40%

Josh Perkins - 39.9%

Jordan Mathews - 39.2%

Silas Melson - 39.1%

Nigel Williams-Goss - 36.8%

In fairness, the 3-point line was a little closer in 2017 than in 2021.  Most teams in the country saw their 3-point shooting percentages decrease a bit when that change was implemented.  That said, the numbers indicate the 2017 team had more capable shooters from distance than the 2021 team.
