Winning UTEP women's basketball team takes aim at Rice's 25-game C-USA victory streak

The UTEP women's basketball team has brought big-time women's basketball back to the Don Haskins Center with its 4-1 start in Conference USA play.

Conference USA's reigning juggernaut, defending champion Rice, is bringing its 25-game league winning streak to El Paso on Thursday night, where it will face the red-hot Miners on an unprecedented offensive roll.

This is the biggest basketball game in El Paso since the 2016 WNIT, the first and second place teams in a January showdown that will help define this C-USA regular season.
