Las Vegas- Kevin Olekabie could soon be wearing Rebel red. The NCAA has approved a waiver for UNLV, allowing the senior guard to play basketball immediately without penalties.

Coach Dave Rice says if the Mountain West Conference approves, Olekaibe could play in the Runnin’ Rebels’ first regular season game against Portland State on Friday.

The former Cimarron Memorial High basketball star transferred to UNLV this summer, after playing three seasons with Fresno State.
