It’s been nearly a quarter century since the UNLV Rebels captured the national basketball championship and it may be another quarter century before they win it again.
Let’s face it, today’s Runnin’ Rebels under third-year coach Dave Rice aren’t in the same league as Jerry Tarkanian’s 1989-90 team led by All-Americans Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon and the nature of college basketball has changed such that building a championship team with quality recruits gives you about as much of a guarantee as you’d get from a used car salesman.
UNLV just landed a blue-chipper in Rashad Vaughn from Findlay Prep, right here in Las Vegas. He’s a 6-5 swingman who was heavily recruited by national stalwarts Kansas, North Carolina, Kentucky and Iowa State. Rivals.com ranked him as the No. 7 high school recruit in the nation.
