Great game! A defensive slug fest that could have gone either way.
Jeremy was better all around than I've seen him all year.

Go Miners!

Don't get too excited people...according to our resident expert (Steve rockport) the Miners (or Minors as he calls HIS team) should have won by 15. His words yesterday. So its not a big win by any means. Never mind that it keeps the Miners in 1st place and was a road victory where we have just won once in seven tries. We did not win by 15 against a team with a ranking of somewhere in the 500's or something. Lets anxiously await his next expert analysis to remind us that according to Sagrin we should have just walked all over Houston and they had no business being on the court with UTEP.
Great job Miners, Stone MVP as always, great to see the team all over Portalatin at the time-out after he got that huge rebound. I'll be there Wednesday...will you?

Exactly - and remember he also typed:'If we can't beat Houston easily - its a bad sign.'

He uses "WE" as if he were playing!

But what do you expect from this guy? He probably thinks a basketball is black and white and is used in the most popular sport in the world.

I was very fortunate to be at the game in person. It was a huge defensive game for both teams, very intense game all the way to the last minute. Great job by the Miners and putting pressure on Houston's top scorers, you could see the frustration on the cougars players by all the trash talking. Great turn out by all the faithful UTEP MINERS fans, it almost seemed like a home game for a while, lol.

Jay from S.A. GO MINERS!!!
