Lew Hill, former UNLV men’s basketball assistant, dies

Lew Hill, a UNLV men’s assistant basketball coach from 2004-11, died in his sleep Sunday morning. He was 56.

Hill was the men’s basketball coach at Texas-Rio Grande Valley and coached in the school’s 77-75 loss to Texas Southern on Saturday.

He was 67-77 in his five seasons as the Vaqueros’ head coach. He led Texas-Rio Grande Valley to postseason berths in 2018 and 2019, the school’s first since it reached the 1981 National Invitational Tournament at Texas-Pan American.

Hill served as an assistant under Lon Kruger for 12 seasons at UNLV and Oklahoma. The Rebels were 161-74 under Kruger and reached the NCAA tournament four times during that span, including a Sweet 16 berth in 2007.

Kruger said Hill brought credibility to his programs and was terrific with players, on and off the floor, and in the community.

“Coach Hill had a wonderful family, and he was a great
