We are still months away from the start of the 2012 UTEP mens' basketball season, but Tim Floyd confirmed some key home matchups. The Miners have return games set with Oregon and UNLV, and are close to finalizing a game against Oral Roberts
All the momentum UTEP had after consecutive wins over Memphis and Southern Miss seems to be gone. After a lackluster performance against UCF over the weekend, the Miners dropped their final home game of the season, 68-61 to Rice
It seems like he just arrived in El Paso as a fresh faced teenager from Memphis, but it's been nearly five years since Gabe McCulley officially began his career as a Miner. Tonight, he will play his final game at the Haskins Center
The entire basketball world is convening in central Florida for the NBA All Star Break. Tim Floyd once coached in the NBA, Michael Jordan's son hoops it up for UCF, and Julian Washburn's father was the third pick in the 1986 NBA draft. Those are the only all NBA tie-ins I
It took the majority of the season, but it seems as though UTEP has finally figured out a way to win close basketball games. The Miners have won their last 4 games, 2 of which went into overtime against Tulane and Southern Miss.
UTEP's road woes have been well documented. Before today, the young Miners hadn't achieved victory away from the Haskins Center. Yes, they did win a couple games in Hawaii over the holidays, but not a true road game
As I've mentioned before, post game press conferences are largely awkward. Coaches don't really want to be there and rarely say anything of import. Members of the media posture to see who can ask the most inane question (myself included)
It would be an understatement to say that things haven't been going smoothly for the Miners these past few weeks. The trend continued on Saturday night as UTEP lost its first home conference game of the season to UAB 61-60.
