UNLV should have Zimmerman vs. IU
UNLV is likely to have its key 7-footer for this evening's Maui Invitational matchup with Indiana at 5:00PM ET.
Stephen Zimmerman Jr. recorded double-doubles in three straight games for the Runnin' Rebels before watching his team beat Chaminade on Tuesday because of flu-like symptoms. But he's been upgraded to probable, which is huge for UNLV seeing as how Indiana boasts 6-10 Thomas Bryant, who dropped 19 points on St. John's yesterday.
As of this writing, oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI have yet to post the spread for tonight's matchup. The Hoosiers have failed to cover as a 20-point favorite and a 12.5-point favorite in each of their last two games, while the Rebels have covered the number in three straight games.
