This is it – Game Time.

It’s game time for the Anthony Greener-coached UNLV Rebels who return to the ACHA Nationals for the third straight season – once in ACHA D1, the highest level and once in ACHA D2.

From the Blue Line –  There is no easy path to winning gold here…Rebels are a #13 seed, Robert Morris, Pa is #20….Lindenwood is at the very top, the #1 seed and awaits the winner of #16 Jamestown vs #17 Robert Morris, Ill. University….
