UTEP Men’s Basketball Gets 9 Televised Games
Conference USA just released the 2012-13 men’s basketball television schedule and more than 70 national or regional games will be televised this season. The Miners will be featured nine times on national or regional television, including three road games and two neutral site games. At first, I was excited about 9 games on TV, but then I looked a little closer into the schedule and realized that only one C-USA road game would be televised. Many of us expect the Miners to win 2o or more games and play in the postseason. With this televised schedule, the only chance to follow UTEP on the road in conference play will be to stream games on your computer. Unless KVIA can arrange for some games to be televised on the CW like they have done in years past. The official C-USA release can be viewed here.
