Why UNLV Will Win

On paper this looked like another easy game.  One the Rebels would win by double digits, allowing their bench to get valuable minutes, but then the Bears went into Laramie and shocked the Wyoming Cowboys, handing them a 91 to 84 loss.  But, while Wyoming is a top third team in the conference, they aren’t UNLV.  If UNLV brings the same intensity that they did against Mississippi State, combined with their superior talent, they should be able to easily dispatch of UNC.
