UTEP Basketball Has More Poise

After last night’s tough 61-52 win over Stephen F. Austin, head coach Tim Floyd was asked where his team has improved the most since the start of the season. His answer was easy, “poise”. UTEP was not used to playing patient basketball over the last four years for Tony Barbee. The Miners were usually able to get away with their undisciplined style of uptempo offense because the team was ultra-athletic. Now, Coach Floyd and his staff have been able to break down the bad habits of Barbee-coached teams and rebuild them into his mold of a more-disciplined and patient group. The results are obvious: the Miners are 9-2 and have wins over Texas Tech, Michigan, and two over NMSU. The big test will be on Thursday, when the Miners travel to Provo, Utah and play their toughest test of the season, the BYU Cougars.
