LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Fredi Moderegger, a former UNLV women’s basketball player, organized a school day for five local elementary schools to tour the campus and attend the Lady Rebels game against Boise State.
More than 1,300 third through fifth graders watched UNLV take down Boise State 66-65, winning their fourth game in a row.
Along with a free basketball game, the students learned about scholarships, GPAs and the academics required to attend college. The students toured around campus, speaking to the admission counselors who answered any questions they had.
Fredi is now a third grade teacher at Roundy Elementary and is proud to give back to her community working with UNLV women’s basketball.
The Lady Rebels will host Wyoming on Saturday at the Cox Pavilion at 3 p.m.
