The UNLV men’s basketball team is traveling to the other side of the world for a two-week, six-game exhibition tour in Australia. The Las Vegas Sun will document the Rebels’ journey with game updates and a blog from senior swingman René Rougeau.
Coach Lon Kruger, who has made previous trips to the continent with his teams at Florida and Illinois, said he hopes the trip offers good competition to go along with a team-bonding experience.
“Really, you want competition,” he said. “You want to win. But winning five or losing four isn’t significant. It will be a good experience, both on and off the court.”
