Athletics | Sep 4, 2013

Former UNLV men's basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013. He's the first Rebel to be in the hall. During 19 years at the helm of the Runnin' Rebels (1973-1992), Tarkanian shaped an up-tempo and aggressive style that captivated fans. Posting a 509-105 (.829) record at UNLV, he took four teams to the NCAA Final Four, winning the national championship in 1990 in a 103-73 runaway over Duke -- still the highest margin of victory in tournament championship game history. Here's a look back at the legendary coach's career.
