Following internal deliberation, the UTEP men's basketball team has accepted a bid to join The Basketball Classic postseason tournament, and the Miners will lace up their sneakers this Tuesday for a 5 p.m. tip against an opponent to be determined.
Adversity continues to find ways into the UTEP locker room, like a bed bug you can't get rid of. This time, it was food poisoning that hit the Miner locker room.
Despite the roadblock, UTEP pulled off a 70-61 win over NC Central in the first round of the West Star Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational on Wednesday night...
Entering the game having lost seven of their last nine, the Miners had been starving for some momentum. They were boosted by a hot-shooting night at the Haskins Center on Friday, with a bounce-back win against Florida International, 75-59.
