Muhammad Considering Kentucky, Duke, UCLA, Arizona, Kansas, UNLV

Dec 22, 2011 3:43 PM

Shabazz Muhammad is looking at Kentucky, Duke, UCLA, Arizona, Kansas and UNLV.

USC, the alma mater of Muhammad’s father, Ron Holmes, is apparently out, as is Texas A&M.

“I narrowed my list down actually to six,” he said at the City of Palms Classic. “I think it was a good thing for me to narrow them down to six because a lot of schools were calling that I wasn’t really interested in. So now I can stay grounded on the court and get ready and go through the season.”

Shabazz Muhammad Narrows List To Four

Dec 17, 2011 2:14 PM

Shabazz Muhammad told Rivals.com that Duke, Kentucky, UCLA and UNLV are the four schools that stand out to him and that UCLA's struggles are affecting his recruitment.

"It affected it when UCLA was losing early," Muhammad said. "It had me thinking how I'd fit in. It's tough. I don't want to go to a school on the down turn. But I think they can turn it around."

Moser Could Become First Round Pick

Dec 9, 2011 1:16 PM

UNLV's Mike Moser has worked his way into the "first-round discussion", according to one NBA scout who attended the NOrth Carolina game.

"He has great timing, awareness and instincts, but the main reason he is a fabulous rebounder is he believes every rebound is his and no one will outwork him," says head coach Dave Rice. "As far as what else he can do, he is just scratching the surface."

Rice uses Moser in the post and lets him handle the ball on the break, and Moser has shown three-point range.

UNLV Returns To Prominence With Defense, Fast Tempo

Dec 9, 2011 1:15 PM

UNLV is 8-1 and has a signature 90-80 win over North Carolina.

"You can just feel it—things are getting going around Vegas," says sophomore forward Mike Moser. "And they should be. We are going to do some great things this year."

"Coach (Dave) Rice came and told us we were going to get up and down and that he was going to let us be aggressive," says junior guard Justin Hawkins. "It was what everyone wanted to hear."

Former UNLV star Reggie Theus would have been the flashier higher, but the school went with UNLV instead.

"I had an advantage having been in the [Mountain West] conference. I knew what kind of team Coach Kruger left," says Rice, who was also an assistant at UNLV from 1994 to 2001. "I knew there was the talent here and the kind of kids who would be committed on defense and then capable of really pushing the ball and playing as fast as we can."
