Runnin' Rebel basketball is not too far off, and to get you in the mood the team has announced the date for this season's first fan event.
The Runnin' Rebel Scarlet/Gray Showcase, set for Thursday, Oct. 18 at the Thomas & Mack Center, will include a dunk contest, Scarlet & Gray Scrimmage and the Legends alumni game.
The event will feature a Fan Fest outside of the Thomas & Mack Center from 5 - 6:30 p.m. The building's doors will open at 6 p.m.
Fans will also be treated to new videos and have the opportunity to get autographs from players and coaches.
"We are excited to begin the 2012-13 season and for this opportunity to be back in front of our fans," said UNLV men's basketball head Dave Rice. "This event is so important to our program and we know Runnin' Rebel fans look forward to it each year. It will be a lot of fun for the team as well as the fans, and it will be good for our players to be in front of a crowd as we continue our preparations for games to start in November."
