UTEP battles back to defeat North Texas 67-63 and now heads on two-game road trip

In a game in which the UTEP Miners (12-6, 5-2) were trailing for a large amount of time it battled back to defeat the North Texas Mean Green (9-11, 3-5) 67-63 and improve to 5-2 in Conference-USA. The only lead the Miners had up until 11 seconds in the game was a 4-3 in the first quarter and from that point on it had to fight against a scrappy and defensive-minded North Texas squad.

Senior forward Ariona Gill made a clutch and-one basket with 11 seconds remaining to put the Miners up. Senior guard Katarina Zec sealed the win knocking down a free throw with three seconds left in the game.
