The Runnin’ Rebels Club (RRC) has been formed to raise funds specifically for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels Basketball program. The goal of the RRC is to provide support that will enhance our student-athletes’ ability to succeed both on and off the court and that will elevate our entire program to be able to consistently compete with the nation’s elite men’s basketball programs. Our program is designed to prepare student-athletes for their chosen career while also enabling them to become ambassadors for UNLV that the
RRC and the entire University can be proud of.

Runnin’ Rebel student-athletes are provided with an exceptional academic and athletic experience while attending UNLV that would not be possible without the RRC’s support. The RRC assists the coaching staff in creating and maintaining a first-class, nationally prominent basketball program that enhances the visibility and reputation of our University and the Las Vegas community.



The Runnin’ Rebel Club has raised $1.32 million dollars since its inception in 2013 to date.

Additionally, the RRC’s continued support is needed to keep us consistently competitive with top programs throughout the country. Future initiatives that the group will be working to fund include the following:

  • Staff augmentation includes salaries for Special Assistant to the Head Coach and academic advisor positions.

  • Travel enhancements

  • Summer School tuition costs which allows the program the ability to maintain the APR standing

  • MacBook computers for incoming Rebel players

  • Remodel of the Rebels game day locker rooms inside the T&M

  • New offices at the Mendenhall Center

  • Meal supplements for all UNLV basketball players

  • Complete the graphics package inside the Mendenhall Center training facility

Again, thank you to the group of donors who have and continue to go above and beyond their other donations to UNLV athletics to make the Runnin’ Rebels Basketball program great. You have become an important part of our program and the UNLV family.
