08:20 AM ET 08.01 | Dave Rice has a tall order, but he's already making progress. Rice knows it'll never be like it was in the early 1990s, when UNLV was the headline act in college hoops. The Runnin' Rebels aren't going to surpass Kentucky as long as John Calipari is in Lexington, but the onetime player turned coach certainly has put UNLV back on the national map. ... There are at least three potential first-round picks on the roster: Junior Mike Moser would have likely been picked in the back end of the first round if he'd left after this past season; Pittsburgh transfer Khem Birch will have a chance if he can develop an offensive game; and fellow Canadian Anthony Bennett comes in as a legitimate top-10 recruit with huge upside.

No one, I mean no one, will surpass Kentucky.

Good, we can skip basketball season. No need to play the games.
