The UTEP basketball team is reaching the middle of its offseason — the summer camp portion of June — with a new set of coaches and a good frame of mind that they are heading in the right direction.

"Summer is big. I always tell players, your season is made in the spring and summer," coach Rodney Terry said in a state-of-the-program press conference in advance of their summer youth camp.

With most of last year's team back, just eligible now after five players redshirted last year, the big change is on the staff with the additions of assistants Kenton Paulino and Arturo Ormond.
