Las Vegas – “These games are for coach Nick” is the battle cry for the UNLV Rebels, with heavy hearts, take on Utah University in a two-game weekend series beginning Friday 7:30 pm at the City National Arena. The Rebels will be without their assistant coach Nick Robone who was shot and injured terribly during the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on Sunday in Las Vegas. Nick is recovering at a Las Vegas hospital.
Utah comes into town with a 2-2-1 record. UNLV, in its first season in ACHA D1, is ranked #18 nationally with a record of 3-1-0. Games will be on Friday and Saturday evenings.
