Beard the choice at UNLV

Chris Beard oversaw a 17-game turnaround this season at Arkansas-Little Rock, and UNLV hopes he can pull off a similar feat at UNLV.

He agreed in principle Sunday to become the Rebels’ next basketball coach, according to sources close to the search.

Momentum already was headed toward Beard getting the job when New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies pulled his name from consideration earlier Sunday night.
