All-time Series: UNLV leads 3-1

Last Meeting: UNLV won 74-68, March 18, 2007 (NCAA Tournament 2nd Round)

The Badgers take on UNLV in a very tough road game tonight and this is the place to discuss the game as the action unfolds.

The Rebels are very good. Lon Kruger's team made the NCAA Tournament last season with an at-large bid and he has all five starters returning. There was some drama in the offseason as their best player, Tre'Von Willis got into some trouble off the court and was suspended. He makes his return tonight against the Badgers.

Wisconsin looked pretty good in their first two wins, but the competition was nothing like the Badgers will see tonight. This is a real test and will tell us a lot of about the team. Even though UW scored a lot of points in its first two wins, I still have concerns about getting consistent scoring from the 2-guard spot. Rob WIlson is expected to make his return to the lineup tonight. This is just a hunch, but I think he'll start the game. Hopefully he can solidify his spot as the starting 2-guard.

We have very little to go off of so far this season, but I'm going to take the Rebels in this one.
