Today Marks the 25th Anniversary of UTEP’s 66-60 Win over Kansas

It is hard to believe that today marks the 25th anniversary of the UTEP men’s basketball team’s last NCAA Tournament win. On Sunday, March 22nd 1992, the Miners shocked Kansas and the rest of the college basketball world with a 66-60 upset against the top seed in the Midwest Region. In late 2013, I wrote a blog about that historic game where Don Haskins gave Roy Williams a lesson in coaching and Miner fans were treated to the biggest win by the program since the 1966 title game over Kentucky.

In the last two years, UTEP has honored the 1966 team on the Golden Anniversary of their historic achievement and fan favorite Jeep Jackson on the 30th anniversary of his death. However, it is a little surprising that the school has not been able to gather the ’92 team together in El Paso for a well deserved reunion celebrating their Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Maybe this is already in the works for next season, since UTEP head coach Tim Floyd has done a good job of celebrating the accomplishments of past players and teams during the regular season.
