The UNLV men's basketball team (20-12) advanced to the Mountain West Tournament's quarterfinal round with Wednesday's 97-90 overtime win over Air Force in the first round. The eighth-seeded Runnin' Rebels will now face No. 22 and top-seeded UNR (26-6) on Thursday, March 8 at 12 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Tickets may be purchased at, by calling 702-739-FANS (3267) or by visiting the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office.

This will mark UNLV's third meeting with the Wolf Pack this season. UNLV defeated then-No. 23 UNR in Reno, 86-78, on Feb. 7, while the Wolf Pack defeated the Runnin' Rebels in Las Vegas, 101-75, on Feb. 28. The winner of Thursday's game will also receive three points in the Governor's Series, which is presented by NV Energy and Barrick Gold.

Mountain West Freshman of the Year Brandon McCoy leads UNLV in scoring (17.1 ppg), rebounding (10.2 rpg) and blocks (1.8), while senior Jordan Johnson is the team's and conference's assist leader (6.1 apg).

UNLV's win over UNR in February marked its first against a ranked team since 2015 and snapped the Wolf Pack's 16-game home win streak.

Thursday's game will be televised by CBS Sports Network with Rich Waltz, Bob Wenzel and Evan Washburn (sideline) calling the action. Jon Sandler and former Runnin' Rebel Robert Smith will handle the UNLV radio call, which may be heard live on ESPN Radio 1100 AM/100.9 FM and online via the UNLV Gameday App and TuneIn (link at
