LAS VEGAS, NV – The numbers are simple: three days, three wins and the Runnin’ Rebels earn a berth in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

UNLV, the #4 seed, faces #5 Wyoming in the Mountain West Tournament today. The Runnin’ Rebels barely got by the Cowboys in the one meeting between the two teams during the regular season.

UNLV is 12-1 all-time in the quarterfinals of this tournament and, as 8-point favorites playing in their own arena, will look to beat the Cowboys to advance to the semi-finals.

They’ll be doing it at full strength too. Roscoe Smith will be back after missing the last two games with a concussion as will top-scoring guard Bryce Dejean-Jones who was suspended in the season finale at UNR.

Tip goes up at 2:30 today and will be broadcast on the CBS Sports Network.
