Peter Michel, Head of Exhibits, has curated an exhibit celebrating Jerry Tarkanian, March Madness, and the Game That Put UNLV on the Map!
Check it out on the 1st floor of Lied Library, near Media Services to see THE game ball used in the 1990 championship game. Here's a brief excerpt from the exhibit.
When Moses Scurry asked Tarkanian about playing in Denver’s mile-high altitude after the team arrived for the 1990 Final Four, Tarkanian said, “Moses, don’t worry about it. We’re playing indoors.”
“The secret is to have eight great players and four others who will cheer like crazy.”
