It’s early-season tournament time in Las Vegas and on Friday, the No.4 Michigan Wolverines and the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels are set to meet at T-Mobile Arena to tip off the Roman Main Event tournament. The winner of this matchup will advance to Sunday’s championship game to face the winner of Arizona-Wichita State. The losers will face each other in a consolation game on Sunday as well.
Michigan (2-1) is seeking a bounce back after falling 67-65 to Seton Hall on Tuesday. Down by two with less than a second left, Terrance Williams II went to the line and missed the very free throws that would’ve sent the game into overtime. It was a tough loss for Michigan, who got a solid 18-point, nine-rebound performance out of Hunter Dickinson.
UNLV (3-0) are unbeaten on the season and each of its wins have come within two scores. The Rebels’ last victory came in a 64-62 nailbiter against North Dakota State on Monday, one where Bryce Hamilton put up 17 points.
