The clip below demonstrates that no matter how dang good you are, conference play isn't easy - no matter if you play in the WCC, ACC or Big West. This same UNLV team smashed Duke to pieces in the biggest championship game blow out in NCAA history:

Here's a game clip from the 1991 #1 UNLV at #2 Arkansas game at the old Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville. Both teams went to the final 4 that season, and at that time it was the most anticipated and watched regular season college basketball game in history. Tark turned off the jets in the 2nd half...he could've blown out Arkansas by 40 if he wanted to:

You have to love how that UNLV team was full of players from all over the country. What a great team.

Very true. But what's funny is that their floor general was from Las Vegas and was originally a Portland Pilot.

Really, a pilot? I did not know that. Cool fact to know. Thanks CDC.

Greg was indeed a Pilot at one point. From the Rivals.com article:


Anthony, a point guard from Las Vegas, nearly didn't play for UNLV. Not heavily recruited by the Rebels or any major programs in high school, Anthony went to the University of Portland for a year. He impressed Tarkanian enough to transfer.
