- Wallace out to prove he's more than just a sniper (10-22-09)
- UNLV's Kendall Wallace is riding a hot streak (11-17-09)
Greene's Take: Every team needs specialty guys, and for UNLV, Wallace is its resident 3-point gunner. He averaged just over one trey made per game as a sophomore, and that number could easily double this year. No matter how many guards come into the program and go ahead of Wallace in the rotation, as long as he hits his outside shots and can provide a little bit more here and there, he'll always have his minutes.
UNLV CAREER: Wallace begins his third season as a Runnin' Rebel in 2009-10 ... has played in 60 career games, including making one start ... has scored in double figures four times in his career, all of them coming in his sophomore season.
SOPHOMORE (2008-09): Played in all 32 games, making one start ... averaged 4.6 points per game ... finished the season with 37 3-pointers made, which was third on the team, and shot 41.1 percent from behind the arc ... shot 39.8 percent from the field and 76.2 percent from the free-throw line ... reached double figures for the first time in his career against Northern Arizona, scoring 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting, which included a 4-for-6 effort from 3-point range ... scored a career-high 15 points against Southern Utah, going 5-for-7 from the field with three 3-pointers ... came off the bench and scored 12 points on the road at TCU, going a perfect 4-for-4 from downtown ... put together his best performance in a Runnin' Rebel uniform on the road at Air Force, sparking his team by scoring 15 points on 5-of-9 3-point shooting in a career-high 27 minutes of playing time ... made his first career start at home against TCU.
FRESHMAN (2007-08): Played in 28 games, all off the bench ... missed the first seven games of the season because of a stress fracture in his foot ... averaged 2.4 points per game ... made his Runnin' Rebel debut at Northern Arizona, scoring a season-high nine points, including hitting a pair of 3-pointers and going 3-for-3 at the free-throw line (his first points as a Runnin' Rebel were on a four-point play).
