After going 1-1 in the 2014 Northwestern Mutual Coaches vs. Cancer Classic Championship Rounds at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., last weekend (loss to Stanford, 89-60; win vs. Temple, 57-50), the Runnin' Rebels are back at home to host Albany (2-2) on Saturday, Nov. 29 at 3:30 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center. The game time was moved to earlier in the day because of ESPNU televising the UNLV football game vs. Nevada, Reno, at 7:30 p.m. that day.
UNLV star wide receiver Devante Davis (Galena Park, Texas/North Shore HS) has been invited to play in the annual Reese's Senior Bowl scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015, in Mobile, Alabama's Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

The Rebel triumph secured a second-place finish in the Mountain West and it sent the 2014 senior class comprised of Allison Davies, Daryn Glenn, Jayme Jacinto and Katlin Winters out on a high note.
