Blame it on the Thanksgiving turkey. Or perhaps too much dressing. Or maybe just playing a better team. Whatever it was, the UNLV Rebels (5-1) no longer are candidates to become college basketball's first unbeaten team since Indiana in 1976.

We had our first game on Thursday night in Sutherland, Australia, and lost to the Sutherland Sharks, 72-64. I thought we played just okay as could have been expected.
