Rankings from AP Poll

The 1989-90 UNLV Runnin' Rebels basketball team represented the University of Nevada Las Vegas in NCAA Division I men's competition in the 1989-90 season, and won the NCAA title under head coach Jerry Tarkanian. The team played its home games in the Thomas & Mack Center, and was a member of the Big West Conference; it would join the Western Athletic Conference in 1996 and become a charter member of its current conference, the Mountain West Conference, in 1999. As of the present, they are the last team from any of the non-major seven conferences (AAC, ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10, and SEC) to win the national championship. UNLV won three of its tourney games by 30 points, but got a scare from Ball State in the Regional Semifinal, winning by just 2.

The nickname "Runnin' Rebels" is unique to men's basketball at UNLV. The default nickname for men's sports teams at the school is simply "Rebels", while all women's teams are known as "Lady Rebels".
