Check Out UTEP Freshman Chris Washburn’s Alley-Oop Slam as Miners Bury Oral Roberts [VIDEO]
With the TV guys out chasing high school football, where's the only place you'll see Chris Washburn's big dunk and ANY of coach Tim Floyd's post-game comments? Right here.
A solid second-half defensive effort lifted the UTEP Miners over Oral Roberts, 69-49. Freshman Chris Washburn scored 14 points in his debut, including these two on an impressive alley-oop slam from Jacques Streeter.
That the win came from great team defense impressed Miners head coach Tim Floyd, who noted that he's usually lamenting a loss in first games. He also noted things will get a lot more serious next Thursday night when the Miners face the 11th-ranked Arizona Wildcats in Tucson. The game tips off at 8 p.m. MST and can be seen on Fox Sports.
