This is a UTEP basketball program not seen since mid-Don Haskins.
It's better mentally than the Tony Barbee winning teams of recent yore. And better talently than the Doc Sadler guys .It's probably a notch up from what Billy Gillispie left when - he left the program after getting his first NCAA Tournament.
I'm saying UTEP, with mid-semester add-ons Konner Tucker and McKenzie Moore, are a composite of talent and coached talent.
UTEP hasn't been in such good shape in many years.
