Nothing generates sports excitement in southern Nevada like UNLV men's basketball, and this is your chance to meet the team ahead of the season.
The annual Runnin' Rebel Scarlet/Gray Showcase is set for Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
The fan event, to be held at the Thomas & Mack Center, will include a 3-point contest, scrimmage, Legends game and autograph session.
"We are excited to begin the 2013-14 season and for the opportunity to be in front of our fans again," said head coach Dave Rice. "This event is extremely important to our program and we know Runnin' Rebels fans look forward to it every year."
The Lady Rebels will also be on hand and will take part in the 3-point competition.
At 6 p.m. on the same evening, the UNLV volleyball team will take on Colorado State at the Cox Pavilion. Tickets are free and fans are encouraged to attend before walking across the concourse for the basketball event.
The Runnin' Rebels appeared in the NCAA Tournament for the fourth straight year last season.
A limited number of season tickets for the lower bowl of the Thomas & Mack are on sale now. Tickets may be purchased in person at the Thomas & Mack, by calling 702-739-3267 or online at UNLVtickets.com.
