Vegas Madness: Thousands of basketball fans looking for a win

Thomas and Mack Center

The countdown to March Madness is ticking and everybody is looking for a "W."

Some are deeming this week "Vegas Madness" as the Pac 12, West Coast Conference, and Mountain West host their tournaments in the city.

On Thursday, Mountain West fans from all over the nation packed the Thomas and Mack Center to see who will take the number one spot in the conference.

Fans crowded in T&M as No. 8 UNLV kicked off the day taking on No. 1 UNR. The Running Rebels were looking for a win after a hard loss to Reno last Wednesday at T&M. In the end, UNLV fell to UNR 79-74.

UNLV beat Air Force Wednesday 97-90.

The UNLV Lady Rebels were knocked out of the tournament by a disappointing loss to UNR on Tuesday in double overtime.
