The UTEP Men Hung Tough in Las Vegas

I don’t known how many fans believed the UTEP men’s basketball team would upset UNLV last night in Las Vegas. What I do know is that for 35 minutes, Tim Floyd’s game plan worked to perfection. The Miners slowed the game down and successfully took the Running Rebels out of their offense. UNLV had been averaging more than 80 points per game, but UTEP held them to only 65 on Wednesday night.

“We turned it over too much.  We had the crowd out of it for the most part because of our approach,” Floyd said.  “We did not want to get them into a street game, because they excel at it.  Right now we’re still trying to grow in that area.  It’s not who we’re going to be all year long.”

UTEP was led by Michael Perez’s 17 points, while Gabe McCulley added 15 points and Julyan Washburn score 12. John Bohanon, who did not play against NMSU last Sunday, started but did not score in 15 minutes of action. The Miners return home Saturday night to battle Southern before McNeese State comes to the Don Haskins Center on Monday.
