SOCIAL RECAP: Runnin' Rebels Take On Maui|
Nov. 23, 2015
LAHAINA, Maui, Hawaii - Here's how the the Runnin' Rebels' trip to the Maui Invitational has played out on social media so far...
#UNLVmbb took off on Friday morning.
After arriving, the team acclimated to the weather and the time on Friday in preparations for their boating trip on Saturday morning...
Which was an awesome experience for the team, coaches and staff. The guys even saw some whales on the excursion.
After the cruise, head coach Dave Rice had some media responsibilities to do with ESPN...
And with Fox 5's Kevin Bolinger for the #RebZone that aired last night.

After relaxing during the afternoon, the team was introduced and took a team photo at the Maui Invitational luau on Saturday night.
The guys even got to pick out a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses at the luau 😎
During the luau, Jerome Seagears and Goodluck Okonoboh showed off their hula skills (video below) and Ben Carter and Stephen Zimmerman Jr. participated in a game of corn hole, beating UCLA but falling to Kansas.
And look who the guys ran into!
It was another busy morning for the head man on Sunday as he and the other head coaches met for the pre-tournament press conference near the ocean.
And Now... that leads us to today...
The team went through the final shoot around at 1 p.m. local time.
Tonight the Runnin' Rebels will face UCLA on ESPN2 at 8:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. HT. Be sure to tune in!
