From the release, UNLV is planning events for Runnin’ Rebel Week with the Scarlet and Gray Showcase on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m. It will be the first look at this year’s men’s and women’s basketball teams and will feature team introductions, a scrimmage by both squads, a dunk contest, and much more. Fans in attendance will receive an exclusive poster and the first 1,000 students will get a free t-shirt.
