Thursday night UTEP extended their losing streak to three games after a defeat against FAU 73-66 inside the Haskins center. The Owls at the time, were the worse team in Conference USA and winless in their last six outings.
Even though UTEP now finds themselves at the bottom of C-USA standings, let’s not forget last season. Miners won 13 of their last 17 games after a 1-3 start in conference play (2016-17).
Tonight, UTEP will play host against FIU before heading back on the road for a three-game stretch. If the Miners want to repeat last season’s magic, they must find a way to improve their scoring, rebounding and finding the open man.
Game starts at 7 PM tonight at the Don, hopefully El Paso can make it out and support their squad.
