UTEP falls 77-69 in a hard-fought matchup versus second-place Old Dominion

In what looked to be a stellar matchup coming into the Don Haskins Center Saturday afternoon certainly lived up to the hype but the Miners (13-9, 6-4) came up just short of breaking Old Dominion’s (20-3, 10-1) now eight-game winning streak falling 77-69. The Miners split its two-game homestand after defeating Charlotte 82-76 in overtime Thursday.

“I thought we played really well today and I’m really proud of our team and I’m really glad that we put ourselves in position to win the game,” Head Coach Kevin Baker said.

UTEP senior guard Katarina Zec came out of the gates swinging scoring 16 points in the first quarter which is the second most in a quarter by a Miner in program history, and both the Miners and ODU showcased a fast-paced style of game throughout the game.
