I'm sure the Lady Miners were enjoying their Thursday night off last night, but after watching Memphis lose they could enjoy it a little more. The Tigers fell to Southern Miss on Thursday allowing the Miners to gain some extra cushion in the conference chase. UTEP sits at 8-0 in conference, while Memphis and UAB are two back at 6-2 in C-USA action. The Lady Miners will be back in action on Sunday, trying to do what the Miners men couldn't only two nights ago. That is, win in Houston.
