Floyd Disappointed, Proud After UTEP’s Narrow Loss to Arizona
The Cats are still on the prowl for perfection.
Third-ranked and undefeated Arizona came to El Paso and beat the UTEP Miners, 60-55, in front of UTEP's first sellout crowd in four seasons Friday night. Watch head coach Tim Floyd talk about the loss in his post-game press conference.
The Miners overcame an early double-digit deficit, and even led midway through the second half. But leading scorer and rebounder Vince Hunter fouled out with just over seven minutes to go and it was clear UTEP lost its rudder.
Omega Harris impressed with some Tim Hardaway crossover magic, but the mighty Wildcats hung tough and overcame in El Paso to stay unbeaten.
