Earlier today, C-USA finalized their conference matchups and the UTEP Athletic Department released their basketball schedules for both the men's and women's basketball teams. The biggest change with the new conference schedule is both the men and women playing 18 league games for the first time since the 2004-05 season. The schedule is also more balanced with both teams playing their C-USA games on Thursday and Saturday against the same schools. When the men are playing at home, the women are on the road and vice versa.
