BIG PICTURE

UCLA: This was the finale of a three-game Las Vegas stay. The Bruins are now 7-0 against UNLV; they beat the Rebels in Los Angeles two years ago by 17 points. The Bruins start Pac-12 conference play in their next two games before four more non-conference contests.

UNLV: The Rebels faced their biggest test of the season in UCLA, but they’d already played two other Power 5 conference teams — losing to No. 20 Michigan, but beating California. The Rebels next leave town for the first time this season, traveling to SMU and then San Francisco.

BANK SHOT

The Rebels retired Freddie Banks’ No. 13 to the rafters at halftime. Banks played from 1983-87, including UNLV´s Final Four team that lost to Indiana in the semifinals. Banks had 38 points, including 10 3-pointers, in that game, and averaged 19.5 points that season.
