On Thursday afternoon, former UTEP Senior Associate Athletic Director Brian Wickstrom appeared in studio as a guest on Sportstalk. Wickstrom had just been named Athletic Director at the University of California-Riverside. During the interview, Wickstrom was very candid when discussing the UTEP Men's basketball program.
Texas Tech’s decision to hire Billy Gillispie as head men’s basketball coach was a great move. For the last few years, the Red Raiders’ program has been heading in the wrong direction and Gillispie is the kind of coach that can turn Lubbock back into a basketball town.
