The CSU men’s basketball team finishes up their two-game road trip on Saturday at UNLV, a team that the Rams upset at Moby Arena in January.
CSU (8-16, 3-7 MWC) is coming off of a 34-point loss at the hands of BYU on Wednesday, a game in which every member of the Cougar team scored at least two points. BYU shot 65 percent from the field in their victory, compared to a mere 31 percent by the Rams.
The Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV (18-6, 6-4 MWC) are riding the momentum of a 71-57 victory over TCU on Tuesday. The win for UNLV positioned them into fifth place in the Mountain West Conference, only two games behind of the first place Utah Utes.
The key matchup in Saturday’s game will be between the Rams’ Marcus Walker, who led the Rams with 19 points and a steal against BYU on Wednesday, and UNLV’s senior point guard Wink Adams, who scored 21 points against TCU.
The Rams trip to UNLV will also mark the homecoming of CSU forwards Andre McFarland and Harvey Perry. Perry, a junior college transfer, will be playing in his first game as a Ram in the Thomas & Mack Center.
Saturday’s game can be heard on the UNLV athletic Web site, UNLVRebels.com, starting at 8 p.m.
