Hometown girl Lindy LaRocque, who played high school basketball at Durango High, was named head coach of the UNLV Lady Rebels basketball team. LaRocque replaces Kathy Olivier, who had been the Lady Rebels coach for the last 12 seasons. LaRocque is the first Las Vegas native to be chosen to lead the team. She has been an assistant coach at Stanford for the past three years. LaRocque played for her dad Al Larocque at Durango, and she is still the school’s all time leading scorer in both girls and boys hoops. She played college ball at Stanford and helped lead the team to four straight Final Four appearances.
