LINK TO BOX SCORE

The UTEP Miners mens basketball team dropped Part I of the Battle of I-10 to the NMSU Aggies 89-73 at the Pan-American Center in Las Cruces tonight.  D'Von Cambpell and John Bohannon led the Miners with 11 points each.  Jacques Streeter chipped in 6 points and 5 assists.

The Miners started three freshman, Campbell, Julian Washburn, and Cedric Lang.  Bohannon is of course just a sophomore. Other freshman C.J. Cooper and Hooper Vint saw significant playing time. From UTEP's official recap:

Wendell McKines posted a double-double with 23 points and 13 rebounds, and NM State dominated the glass in an 89-73 win over UTEP on Saturday at the Pan American Center.  The Aggies (3-0) outrebounded the Miners 42-27 and had a 22-13 advantage in second chance points. NMSU also scored 24 points off 16 UTEP turnovers.
