NORFOLK, Va. (September 15, 2000) -- Old Dominion University athletic director Jim Jarrett announced today the addition of a home men's basketball game with the University of Nevada at Las Vegas for the 2000-01 schedule.

The Monarchs will host the "Running Rebels" on Sunday, Dec. 31, 2000 at 2 p.m. at Norfolk Scope, with a return game in Las Vegas on the 2001/02 schedule.

"This game provides another quality opponent on our schedule for the fans in Hampton Roads, as well as a great trip for our supporters next season," says Head Coach Jeff Capel.

Winners of the Mountain West conference tournament and regular season co-champions, UNLV posted a 23-8 record last season, and advanced to the NCAA tournament, falling to Tulsa in the first round. They return four starters and nine letterwinners off last year's squad.

Tickets for the contest will be $15 and available now through the purchase season tickets. For more information , contact the Athletic Ticket Office at 683-4444.
