LAS VEGAS (AP) The UNLV Rebels will not be eligible for the Mountain West championship game or a bowl berth in 2014 after failing to reach the minimum Academic Progress Rate score.
You remember Roscoe Smith, he was a starter as a freshman on the 2011 UConn national championship team. If you’re wondering what happened to him since, he played another season for the Huskies then transferred out to UNLV, where this past season he averaged 11.1 points and 10.9 assists a game for the Running Rebels (and he gets to watch his old team in the Final Four).

Dixie State isn't among the Division II top-25 (they're deep in the "also receiving votes" category) but that will change if they play like they did down the stretch in Vegas. UNLV can chalk this up...
