Emotional Farewell Tonight At The Thomas & Mack
Las Vegas, NV – UNLV will bid a fond farewell to a couple of Runnin’ Rebels before they play their final regular season home game tonight. It’s Senior Night “White Out” and “Vegas Night” at the Thomas & Mack.
All fans are being asked to wear white and the first 7,000 in attendance will receive a free white UNLV T-shirt.
Before the 8:05 tip goes up as the Runnin’ Rebels host Mountain West-leading San Diego state, two seniors – Carlos Lopez-Sosa and Kevin Olekaibe – will be honored as they play their final regular season home game wearing the scarlet and red jerseys.
Wednesday is also “Vegas Night.” A variety of Las Vegas-themed events will take place in addition to Elvis shirts and glasses being distributed in the student section.
A win will likely secure a #3 seed for UNLV in next week’s Mountain West Tournament. Tonight’s game will be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network.
