A message from UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter:

Miner Nation,

Your UTEP men’s basketball team is on a roll under the direction of first-year head coach Joe Golding! The Miners have won eight of their last 11 games and currently hold a 9-6 record in Conference USA play. UTEP has 16 wins overall, four more than the previous season.

Last week, the Miners posted their first win at LA Tech in 18 years, and they swept the LA Tech-Southern Miss road trip for the first time in school history.

After notching seven road victories – its most in eight years – UTEP returns to the Don Haskins Center for the final three games of the regular season. The Miners currently sit in fourth place in C-USA’s West Division and will have the opportunity to move up in the standings over the next two weeks. The team needs your support!

This Saturday, Feb. 26, UTEP hosts second-place UAB at 7 p.m. I invite all UTEP students, faculty and staff to come out and support the Miners during this critical game.

Students can claim their free ticket to the game by visiting

Plus, we have a special UTEP employee discount for this game. All active employees are eligible for $5 tickets in the Bronze, Copper, Green and Navy sections (must purchase a minimum of two tickets). Please follow this link to purchase your $5 tickets:

Thank you for your support of Athletics and the Miner basketball program! We’ll see you in the Haskins Center on Saturday night!
