Chace Stanback is back to scoring comfortably for No. 21 UNLV. He wants his teammates to take the mojo that’s made the Runnin’ Rebels undefeated at home on their last road game.
“It’s extremely important for us — we haven’t played well on the road,” Stanback said Saturday after scoring 21 points to lead UNLV past Air Force 68-58. “It’s a challenge we’ll have to live up to.”
UNLV hasn’t won on the road since beating Air Force in Colorado on Jan. 28. The Rebels lost twice on the road a week ago to drop 10 spots in the AP Top 25, hurting their chances at a high seed going into the NCAA tournament — making it more likely that they’ll have to travel further and play tougher opponents.
