UNLV basketball player Chace Stanback was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, the Las Vegas Sun reported Monday.

Stanback, a senior, was reportedly arrested Friday night just a few blocks away from his off-campus apartment.

"We do know that there was an incident, and we are trying to determine when it happened and what transpired," first-year UNLV coach Dave Rice said Monday.

The 21-year-old forward is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 11, according to the Sun.


Stanback, who transferred to UNLV from UCLA in 2008, was a leading scorer for the Rebels last season. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 13.0 points per game and led the team with 5.9 rebounds per game.
