This team has improved a lot since the beginning of the season. Not too long ago they were wide-eyed freshmen losing to UTSA and Stephen F Austin. They are playing much better now, and the return of Gabe McCulley doesnt hurt either.

The game today turned me into a believer. I think this team can actually finish #1 or #2 in the conference. This young UTEP team beat Clemson by double digits, a team that blew out UAB last year in the NCAA tournament and had 3 seniors in their starting lineup. and UTEP did it without their most athletic player Julian Washburn.


Gabe McCulley is playing like the senior that he is. He plays every possession like it's his last and I like that. I think the difference besides Gabe is Perez. He showed that he can carry this team if need be. I think there is to much pressure on Wasburn. He has been annoited by Floyd as the net NBA star and right now he is just a good freshman. He is called the most athletic Miner but I think Perez is. If Perez was 6'7" loke Gabe or Julian it would be game over. He would be an all american. This team plays great when they share the ball. Last night's game was the Streeter show. He penetrates nicely but cannot finish at the rim. I would much prefer him to dish to the bigs for easy buckets or kick to the shooters.
