UTEP women survive Charlotte in overtime with huge night from Gill

Katarina Zec Nears 1,000th Point Wochit

The UTEP women's basketball team let leads get away two different times against Charlotte on Thursday night.

Just in time, the Miners remembered where they left them.

In an 82-76 victory that snapped a two-game losing streak, they recovered from blowing a 17-point first-half lead, a three-point lead in the final 22 seconds of regulation, and they cashed in a career night from senior Ariona Gill to move to 6-4 in Conference USA.

Sabine Lipe hit back-to-back 3-pointers to start the overtime, which along with a pair of 3-pointers in the first two minutes, gave her 12 for the game.
