Rice men at UTEP preview El Paso Times

As it turns out, rock bottom for the UTEP men's basketball team came with an almost unfathomable bounce.

Trailing by 19 points in the second half, the Miners hit a gear they haven't shown in more than a month to charge back to a 68-62 win that could extend their season.

UTEP started the run by scoring 16 unanswered points in five possessions in two minutes, 14 seconds, coinciding with the beginning of a stretch where the Owls made 1-of-18 shots.
