Going through a quick turnaround from losing to Old Dominion (50-48), who is the current No. 1 team in C-USA, the Miners will regroup and have their eyes set on Charlotte for Saturday's contest in the Don Haskins Center.
UTEP couldn't escape poor shooting for the second straight game, as Norfolk State shot 46 percent (11-for-24) from 3-point range and raced away with a 75-62 win in the opening round of the WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational.
In front of 6,106 roaring fans, the Don Haskins Center was alive for a well-contested war between the two schools that featured eight lead changes, a surging comeback by the Miners and NMSU eventually breaking away with a 62-58 win.
Now that the men's basketball season has officially kicked off and the team has a win under their belt, it's time to dial back down what we saw last night in the Miners' 90-63 win over UT Permian Basin.
