Runnin' Rebels Return to National Rankings After Big Win
News

LAS VEGAS -- Following a convincing road win Saturday in Chicago, the UNLV Runnin' Rebels are back in the national polls.

The Runnin' Rebels check in at No. 21 in the Associated Press poll and at No. 23 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll.

UNLV (11-2) downed previously undefeated No. 19 Illinois, 73-62, as it continued its brutal stretch of road games against tough competition. The Rebels' only losses came at Wichita State and No. 13 Wisconsin.

The team also spent time in the national rankings earlier this year after upsetting then-No.1 North Carolina at the Orleans Arena over Thanksgiving weekend.
