Both of the UTEP Men's and Women's basketball teams made a rare appearance on SportsCenter on Friday to lead off the show.  The fact that both teams won and lost on Thursday to FIU in multiple overtime sessions, on buzzer beaters, by the same score of 88-87, was so unique that it made national headlines.  Let's face it, I've been watching SportsCenter for around 23 years and my jaw dropped when I witnessed their opening highlights from the Miner's peculiar circumstances in which their games concluded.
