Bryce Harper was born in 1992, two years after the Jerry Tarkanian-coached UNLV men’s basketball team capped a dominating season by obliterating Harper’s beloved Duke Blue Devils, 103-73, in the NCAA championship game.
“Legends Never Die” Nobody will ever be better than Tark the “Shark” Thank you for everything you have done for UNLV and the Las Vegas area..You truly are a Legend! #THESHARK#NeverForget@sportscenter@reviewjournal
Harper is wearing a Runnin’ Rebels hat and nifty jacket with the last names of the starters from the 1989-90 championship team: Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, David Butler, Greg Anthony, Anderson Hunt and “The Shark.”
Harper posted a message about Tarkanian on Tuesday as well.
Prayers and blessings to Coach..Nobody better than this man! He is a true hero of Las Vegas! #TarkTheShark#UNLV
