LAS VEGAS - UNLV Runnin' Rebel basketball is presenting its annual "Pack the Mack" Day on Saturday, Feb. 20, as it faces Colorado State at 3 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center. All balcony tickets for the game will be discounted to just $7.
"This special game is an opportunity for us to thank our fans for their terrific support," said UNLV head coach Lon Kruger. "We hope families and friends will get together and enjoy the atmosphere of a Rebel game."
UNLV leads the West in attendance this season and is averaging 16,380 fans per game for its five conference home games. With its marks of 18,557 (a sellout) against BYU and 18,044 against New Mexico last week, the Runnin' Rebels drew 18,000-plus fans to back-to-back home games for the first time since February 1991.
A limited number of plaza tickets are also available to the game for $30.
Tickets can be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office, or by calling (702) 739-FANS.
UNLV, which is 19-6 overall and 7-4 in Mountain West Conference play, will play at Utah on Wednesday night before hosting Colorado State.
