LAS VEGAS (AP) -UNLV honored the 1990 national championship team, including coach Jerry Tarkanian, during halftime of an exhibition game against Washburn.
Greg Anthony, the point guard on the school's only championship team, and Tarkanian received the loudest ovations during introductions Tuesday night.
Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon, two of the team's top players, didn't attend. Augmon is an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets and Johnson attended a dinner reunion for the team on Monday.
``Thank you for all the memories. We are honored to be here with you tonight,'' Anthony told the crowd.
The Runnin' Rebels beat Duke 103-73 in the championship game, setting an NCAA record that still stands for largest margin of victory in a title game.
