UNLV Rebellion up for best student section

Posted: Updated:

They are arguably the rowdiest section of fans at University of Nevada, Las Vegas basketball games.

That reputation has qualified the UNLV Rebellion for a Naismith Student Section of the Year.

The UNLV athletics department said people can vote on the best student section in the country at www.facebook.com/ilovecollegehoops. Fans can vote once per day.

"We want to encourage all students, alumni, staff, and fans to show their support of UNLV by voting for the The Rebellion as the top college basketball student section in the country," said D.J. Allen, Senior Associate Athletics Director of Communications at UNLV. "The Rebellion's creativity in recent seasons has been trend-setting on a national level. With colleges and universities all over the country vying for this top award, it is important that our fans visit the I Love College Hoops Facebook page, and vote for their Rebels."

The winning student section's school will receive the top price of $10,000 toward its general scholarship fund.

This is the second year the online vote has taken place. Kansas University took home the inaugural honors.
