Documentaries: The Runnin’ Rebels of UNLV
Before the Fab 5 hit the University of Michigan, the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels were the most feared team in college basketball, living up to their nickname by running over Duke in the national championship game by a score of 103 – 73. To date, it’s still the largest margin of victory for an NCAA Tournament final and the only game in which the winning team scored 100 points.
The UNLV documentary presented by HBO Sports chronicles the rise of the program during the 70s before culminating in Jerry Tarkanian’s dismissal by the school president in the early 90s. If you didn’t have HBO, thank Jose3030 for the embedding and uploading and witness a great documentary.
