LAS VEGAS - Mike Moser's entire college basketball career intersects at the MGM Garden Arena tonight in the second round of the Pac-12 tournament. Moser will start for Oregon, playing against UCLA, where he began his career in 2009-10, in Las Vegas, where he spent two years at UNLV. Mike Moser, this is your life. “It's not really odd to me,” Moser said. “I have always followed the path that was right.” What a long and winding road it has been, leading back home.

With their point-a-minute defense leading the way, New Mexico's Lost Lobos took over the Bottom Ten lead. The Lobos, edged 14-56 by Utah, have allowed 180 points in three games. However, they face a threat to the top spot Saturday when they play equally inept Nevada Las Vegas (0-3), ranked No. 6. It's a must-lose game for both teams. No. 7 North Carolina, which had 12 players sit out a 24-30 loss to Georgia Tech because of an NCAA investigation, announced it's switching to six-man football.

Jeff Kearin, Cal State Northridge's football assistant head coach, is joining John Robinson's staff at Nevada Las Vegas. "It was tough to leave but it's something I think I had to do for myself in order to get a head coaching job someday," Kearin said. Kearin, 38, was a Northridge assistant the last four seasons under three coaches and was the team's recruiting coordinator. He was an assistant to Robinson at USC from 1991-94. Kearin will be tight ends coach and help with special teams at UNLV.

Jeremi Rudolph and Kevin Brown each topped the 100-yard mark in rushing and quarterback Jason Thomas added 126 yards on the ground as Nevada Las Vegas hung on Saturday to defeat Hawaii, 34-32, and assure itself of a postseason bowl game. With the victory, the Rebels (7-5) will play Arizona State in the Las Vegas Bowl. It was a dominant offensive show displayed by UNLV, which finished with 431 yards on the ground. Thomas rounded out the attack with 124 yards passing.

Tyrone Nesby made a three-point basket with 1:24 left to give Nevada Las Vegas the lead, then sealed the win with a pair of free throws as the Runnin' Rebels upset fifth-ranked Utah, 54-51, in the quarterfinals of the Western Athletic Conference tournament at Las Vegas. Nesby, who had a game-high 22 points, rebounded a miss by Andre Miller of Utah (25-3), and then sank two free throws after being fouled with 6.4 seconds left.

What happened with Mike Moser in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas. What happened was, after a freshman season spent languishing near the end of UCLA's basketball bench, Moser transferred to Nevada Las Vegas and had a breakout first season. The forward averaged 14.0 points and 10.5 rebounds for the Runnin' Rebels as a sophomore in 2011-12, and even though he was slowed by elbow and hip injuries last season, he was a productive reserve, averaging 7.1 points and 6.1 rebounds. But then he decided to move again - this time closer to his family in Portland.

 Senior defensive end Eric Prevost of Covina Charter Oak is having a season to remember. He has 12 sacks in five games. And that's despite opponents knowing they must block him to succeed. "He's the best kid we've ever put on the field for a defensive player," veteran Coach Lou Farrar said. Prevost, 6 feet 2, 225 pounds, is also a champion wrestler. He has great technique and loves getting to the quarterback. UNLV, Nevada and UTEP are among the schools that have offered Prevost a scholarship.

Andy Enfield, USC's new basketball coach, got good news over the Memorial Day weekend: Katin Reinhardt of Dana Point, who played in high school at Mater Dei, said he was coming to USC from UNLV. Reinhardt averaged 10.1 points for the Rebels, fourth-best on the NCAA team. UNLV Coach Dave Rice told Las Vegas media that Reinhardt "said he feels his best opportunity to play in the NBA is to play more minutes at the point guard position. Katin would have had an opportunity for minutes at the point, but I've never guaranteed anyone they will start or play a certain number of minutes.

Reporting from Las Vegas -- Dewayne Dedmon's face belonged on a milk carton in USC's previous four games. The 7-foot sophomore had all but vanished from the box scores, turning Coach Kevin O'Neill's lofty hype that Dedmon was a future NBA lottery pick into a foolhardy forecast. Against Nevada Las Vegas on Friday, Dedmon finally made an impact — only not the kind he wanted. Showcasing the inexperience of a player who began playing organized basketball at 18, Dedmon drew a game-turning technical foul in the second half that keyed UNLV's 66-55 win in the Las Vegas Invitational.

Only a few years ago, the best defensive player on Nevada Las Vegas' football team was concentrating on hitting the ball, not the ballcarrier. Linebacker Scott Patton played three minor league seasons as an outfielder in the Chicago White Sox organization, rubbing elbows briefly with Michael Jordan before quitting to return to college. Patton--who went to Capistrano Valley High School and later Saddleback College--was hitting .300 with Class A Hickory (N.C.

ATLANTA -- Rick Pitino hasn't had “One Shining Moment” this Final Four weekend. He's had several. It's been pretty surreal. It started last week, when Pitino's son Richard, was named coach at Minnesota to replace Tubby Smith, who replaced Rick Pitino at Kentucky in 1998. It continued Saturday, when a horse that Rick Pitino has an ownership stake in, “Goldencents,” won the Santa Anita Derby. Later that night, Louisville's basketball team advanced to Monday night's NCAA title game with a win over Wichita State at the Georgia Dome.

LAS VEGAS - For six crazy years, Jon Goldman has undergone a transformation before every UNLV game from energized boy-wonder student to, well, cartoon character. He's got the facial hair of Yosemite Sam, the speed of the Roadrunner and the whirling-dervish energy of the Tasmanian Devil. But for fans of the Runnin' Rebels sports teams, he's the high-fiving, fist-pounding, fireworks-shooting, do-it-all dance machine who goes by the name “Hey Reb.” Goldman, the University of Nevada Las Vegas team mascot, retired Saturday with a ceremony at the Rebels basketball game against Fresno State.
