UTEP has always been good this year at beating teams below them in the Conference USA standings.

Now the Miners have figured out how to win a close one on the road and because of that they will make the postseason.

How it happened

UTEP put together its first three-game win streak of league play by scoring the last four points, all on free throws, against Middle Tennessee to come away with a 60-56 victory that clinched a berth in the C-USA tournament.
