From such humble beginnings as a one-building school in the desert, UNLV has blossomed into a large urban campus. Much like the school, the basketball team has evolved into a nationally-recognized program.
Runnin’ captures the complete legacy of UNLV basketball, from the start to the hiring of Jerry Tarkanian, then the four trips to the Final Four, including the 1990 national championship, and the great individual players such as Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, Greg Anthony, Reggie Theus, Ricky Sobers, Sidney Green, Armon Gilliam and Marcus Banks.
Few programs have been able to achieve the success so quickly. Few teams enjoy the rabid fan support the Rebels have garnered over the years. It’s all chronicled by UNLV basketball veteran beat writer Steve Carp, who has covered the team since 1988.
Runnin’ is the most comprehensive and up-to-date look at one of the nation’s most successful college basketball programs. It’s a compelling, fascinating story, one that is sure to capture the imagination of any basketball fan.
