Following UTEP volleyball's 5-21 (2-12 C-USA) season, UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter announced on Monday that head coach Holly Watts is out as the coach of the program. A national search will begin immediately to hire her replacement.
The Miners (1-9, 1-5 C-USA) have an opportunity to send off the 2018-19 season on a high note with two winnable games in their final two weeks, where they take on Western Kentucky (1-9, 0-6 C-USA) this Saturday, Nov. 17, and hosting Southern Mississippi next Saturday, Nov. 24.
Now that the men's basketball season has officially kicked off and the team has a win under their belt, it's time to dial back down what we saw last night in the Miners' 90-63 win over UT Permian Basin.
Take one: enter the Rodney Terry era, which was filled with mostly a brand new squad, high intensity and featured a win on opening night, 90-63, over UT Permian Basin on Tuesday night in the Don Haskins Center.
The storybook novel that is the UTEP men's basketball program will notch a new chapter in the history books on Tuesday evening, as first-year head coach Rodney Terry and the team will be able to debut their season against UT-Permian Basin at the Don Haskins Center.
