This has to get better if it's to be real UTEP basketball!
On Saturday night, the Miners pulled to an 18-point second-half lead, then almost blew it. It was a 64-60 eke over the now 3-5 Idaho Vandals.
UTEP (3-4) is supposed to control teams like Idaho in The Don.
Next up, a week from Monday, is a home game against UNLV. Then there's a home game vs. Oregon.
Yes UTEP is young. But you shouldn't go almost half the second half without a field goal against an Idaho. And Idaho got some good shots by being in good position for rebounds.
Lots of work ahead for the Miners.
