    Well, Phyllis, enjoy the fact that UNLV just had it's worst season in school history, but don't worry about the Rebels, they'll get more than 11 wins this year. But maybe you're a little out of touch with what matters to recruits. Working out with NBA superstars isn't going to hurt recruiting, as Las Vegas Reb stated, the Rebels don't need a checkbook. Maybe Iowa State does? Or maybe they just need to do what one of you mentioned above and hire a kid's handler or AAU coach as an assistant, it worked for Missouri. If Iowa State can't get the NBA to come to you, maybe that would be the way to go. Good luck! (BTW, look for an AAU coach in Vegas the last week in July, they were all here this last week. As was practically every single college coach. It was great fun.:))

    UNLV sucks at basketball no matter what goes on in Vegas. I actually think it would really suck to cheer for a program that attracts top recruits only to watch them incredibly under perform. Having high hopes every year just to watch it turn into terrible basketball would be maddening.

    Immature little baby. You're obviously insecure about the national status of your team and for some dumbass reason,you feel the need to justify worthless garbage to us, get over it. UNLV SHOULD win more than 11 games. With all that you're program has gained in the past months, I'd think that UNLV SHOULD make it past the first week of the tournament on top of actually making it this year. I guess my point is expectations mean nothing. Results are the only thing that matter.

    UNLV no longer has Rice so who knows what's next for them. If the dude can coach they will be tough in short time.

    Dave Rice era, the guy could recruit but couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag. He's gone now. I don't think the Rebs will have the same issues going forward, maybe our teams can meet up one day soon. That would be fun.

    Hey don't let facts get in the way of a good story. :cool: But anyway, the Rebs beat the Cyclones the last time they played, even with Dave Rice as coach.

    Anyway, I was just cruising through here, but I saw that Phyllis felt really bad, so I just wanted to make her feel better about your recruiting. I hope I helped.

    I do have a serious question for you guys, though, before I leave. Kruger spent several years building the Rebs program back up (some of those tournament wins) and for the first two years Rice was here he had some regular season success with Kruger's players, such as beating #1 North Carolina.. Then it was all Rice, and you can see how that worked out. Do you have any concerns of that happening with the transition from Hoiberg to Prohm? Or do you think Prohm will do well in the end?

    Dave Rice never won an NCAA Tournament game at UNLV. Prohm's first two years he won 3 games. Not seeing the correlation honestly

    Prohm runs a slightly different style of program than Hoiberg did. Prohm is more focused (probably substantially so) on defense. He's done a good job of getting players here that fit what he wants to do. Can't say for certainty that he'll be successful, but he's proven that he can coach at this level and that he belongs.

    Yes, if the program tanks over the next 5-6 years I will be concerned.

    The past two years Prohm has had us playing our best going into March, which is good to see. i think he's done a good job getting players; our first 5 star out of high school since Craig Brackins will suit up for us this year, Lindell Wigginton. Also Terrence Lewis was another good addition. I think the program is in good hands with Prohm.
