Picks: UNLV vs. UNR

[SPORTS] TUESDAY, JAN. 29

So it turns out there’s another university in this state. It’s in a town called “Reno,” which is an ancient aboriginal name meaning “pimple on Vegas’ ass.” True story! Or, if not exactly true-true, it’s certainly accurate in the emotional vocabulary of Nevada sports. So strap on a red jersey, draw up a sign to wave at the Jumbotron (we suggest, “It’s time for proportionate distribution of state education funding based on population!”) and cheer on the resurgent UNLV hoopsters. 7 p.m., Thomas & Mack Center, UNLV, $25-$50, 739-FANS
