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.
As soon as the buzzer sounds on Thursday evening in the Don Haskins Center, the Miners (6-11, 1-5 C-USA) will embrace the underdog role and fight an uphill battle against Old Dominion (15-5, 5-2 C-USA).
After a tough weekend that included back-to-back road losses UAB (76-63) and Middle Tennessee (75-72), UTEP (6-11, 1-5 Conference USA) is left to regroup as they sit in last place in the latest C-USA basketball standings.
At 5-8 overall, the Miners are coming off losing their first two games in conference play to UTSA, but statistically, UTEP stacks among some of the best--and worst--in the conference through various categories.
Seeking to avenge their first two losses in C-USA play, the Miners (5-8, 0-2 Conference USA) will have their week set on preparing to host North Texas (15-1, 3-0) and Rice (7-9, 2-1) on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
