UNLV will play one more tournament on the road in Corvallis, Ore., hosted by Oregon State on Sept. 3-4, before returning to the friendly confines of the Cox Pavilion.
After playing six consecutive contests on the road, the Rebels will play eight straight at home. The squad will play three apiece in the UNLV Invitational (Sept. 18-11) and UNLV Classic (Sept. 17-18) before opening conference play at home against Air Force (Sept. 24). The final home match will pit UNLV against in-state rival Nevada, Reno on Sept. 27.
