The UNLV Runnin’ Rebels have met the end of the line on their 2019-2020 season.
The fourth-seeded Rebels took a loss to No.5 Boise State in the Mountain West Tournament quarterfinals with a final score of 67-61.
The first half was slow going and defensively driven, as UNLV shot under 30 percent from the field and went 4-14 from behind the three.
The All-Mountain West First Team forward, Bryce Hamilton, and Amauri Hardy led the team in scoring with eight points each at the end of the half.
Hardy drilled a late three at the buzzer to send the crowd roaring as both teams headed into the locker room.
The beginning of the second half seemed to be lack-luster as well, with no points scored and four turnovers within nearly a five-minute stretch.
However, the Runnin’ Rebels kept fighting as Jonah Antonio had two short runs and the team closed the game to a two-point gap.
In the end, it was the Broncos who walked away with the win and the Rebels rounded out their season with a 17-15 record.
Boise State will continue on to the semifinals. Their next game will be Friday night at 6 p.m. against San Diego State.
