What’s next for the UNLV basketball team?
UNLV Basketball Head Coach Luke Wright was at the NCAA Tournament Final Four last night, but his team is on the other side of the stage in the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
UNLV defeated Kentucky 78-70 in a Best of 7 NCAA Tournament semifinal on Friday night, marking the first time in school history that the Rebels have been to the Final Four.
“It was an amazing experience.
I was very proud of the way we competed,” Wright said.
“The guys did an amazing job.
It was a tremendous experience, but it’s a different situation now than when I got here.
I’m here to lead a team and win basketball games, not win championships.”

The final three meetings will be played at the Palace of Auburn Hills.UNLV will be playing for its third NCAA Tournament title in five years and fifth in six years, as well as a spot in the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
