And while 25 years may have passed since the team accomplished the feat, it’s clear that they’re still as close as ever.Earlier this week, former Runnin’ Rebels head coach Jerry Tarkanian passed away at the age of 84. To pay homage to their former coach, six former UNLV players – Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, James Jones, Anderson Hunt, Mo Scurry and Chris Jeter – got matching tattoos celebrating his life and their 1990 squad.Johnson and Augmon documented the entire process on Twitter early Wednesday morning.Rip coach Tark LJ Ice Hunt Nice Jeter Mo Scurry pic.twitter.com/4U3cekWNYc— Larry Johnson (@TheRealLJ2) February 18, 2015This is how we remember Coach Tark pic.twitter.com/y3UESuDDcH— Larry Johnson (@TheRealLJ2) February 18, 2015Roommate first, Ice pic.twitter.com/aw7moxPLTX— Larry Johnson (@TheRealLJ2) February 18, 2015MVP Hunt Nice pic.twitter.com/wckyWkplw1— Larry Johnson (@TheRealLJ2) February 18, 2015It’s on me now. pic.twitter.com/k9k0wKSv5m— Larry Johnson (@TheRealLJ2) February 18, 2015James jones pic.twitter.com/tCh9XmWsRu— realstaceyaugmon (@staceyaugmon) February 18, 2015Chris jeter pic.twitter.com/XxY995GuB3— realstaceyaugmon (@staceyaugmon) February 18, 2015Anderson hunt.
