UTEP was clearly outplayed: outrebounded, outshot, outhustled, outeverything. A 6'7" forward blocked 4 of 6'11" Moultrie's shots. HOW? They WANTED that game. UTEP played without the killer instinct again and got bullied by a team that played like a team -- with big heart. This is the same Tech squad that nearly lost to McNeese State!!! Way to go UTEP. You showed why you're not a top 25 team.... yet.

There was no reason Moultrie should have been shooting a 3 pointer with the team spread all over the floor and down by 5. W*T*F?

UTEP was totally out hustled. Over and over the Miners stand by and look for someone else to pull the boards down. We so out-sized Tech but played like they had the size advantage. Moultrie's shot selection pretty much sucks and he goes to the hoop like he's still in high school. I love UTEP but I hate seeing them play like wusses. Even the Tech announcer said he didn't know how UTEP has lost any games this season with their size, speed and overall athletic ability. I know how: as a team UTEP hasn't yet found a heart!!!

Maybe an "upside down" philosophy would work a little better.

I love UTEP, but Barbee Sucks!!! he is a GREAT recruiter but a horrible coach...

I cant wait until he has a good year and gets loured somewhere else so Randall Dickie can take over ad coach these guys some defense.
