UNLV Men’s Basketball 2019-2020 season preview

The UNLV Men’s Basketball team is set to kick off the 2019-20 season this Tuesday at home against Fort Wayne.

The Runnin’ Rebels finished with a 17-14 record last season, losing to San Diego State in the Mountain West tournament and eventually firing head coach Marvin Menzies.

UNLV will be seeking their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2013 this season, as well as their first Mountain West Championship since 2008.

New Man in Charge

Tuesday will mark the debut for new Runnin Rebel head coach TJ Otzelberger. Otzelberger went 77-33 during his three-year tenure at South Dakota State, along with two Summit League championships and two NCAA tournament appearances.
