The UTEP Miners men's basketball team (17-11, 9-6) might be saving their best for last. The team has won its last six games and is currently in fifth place overall in the CUSA standings. Miners assistant coach Bob Cantu joined Sportstalk yesterday and talked about the reasons for his team's sudden dominance on the court.

The Miners have a huge road game coming up Thursday night against Old Dominion (15-12, 8-6). A win over the Monarchs would give UTEP the inside track on moving up to fourth place in CUSA. Coach Cantu previewed the game and talked about what too expect from Old Dominion.

One other subject that was discussed during Coach Cantu's 45-minute in studio appearance was recruiting. Since he joined Tom Floyd's staff from USA, Cantu has been instrumental in recruiting for the Miners. He elaborated on the challenges that he faces when trying to get players to come to El Paso.
