As everyone is aware, the UTEP men's basketball season is right around the corner. Since we still do not have a full schedule, the only thing we know for sure is that seating for home games at the Don Haskins Center will be extremely limited, if fans are even allowed at all inside the arena by the time games tip off later this month. Interestingly enough, no additional season tickets or individual game tickets will be sold for basketball season. However, UTEP announced their new "Defend The Don" Initiative for 2020, and it comes with some sweet perks.
