Remaining tickets for the UNLV basketball team’s next two home games — Saturday against New Mexico and Feb. 16 against San Diego State — are selling quickly, school officials announced Tuesday.
As of Tuesday morning, less than 1,300 tickets were available for the game against No. 15 New Mexico. For the following Saturday against San Diego State, fewer than 500 tickets remain.
Of UNLV’s three sellouts last year, two came against New Mexico and San Diego State, the Rebels’ primary rivals in the Mountain West Conference. The San Diego State game has sold out the past two seasons.
UNLV has averaged 15,223 fans over 13 home games this season at the 18,500-seat capacity Thomas & Mack Center. It has ranked in the top 25 nationally for attendance the past four years.
Tickets start at $25 and are available at UNLVTickets.com, by calling (702) 739-FANS or at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office.
UNLV (17-5, 4-3) returns to action Wednesday at Fresno State in the final game of the first half of league play. UNLV will be at an advantage in the second part of conference play because it has already played road games at New Mexico, San Diego State and Colorado State — three of the league’s best teams.
