Final thoughts: The truth is that after that loss to UAB on Wednesday, we might have punched our ticket to an NIT invitation. While we still have a little over a month left in the regular season, history has shown us that bad losses at any time can prove to be resume killers. Yes UTEP has an awesome SOS but when it comes to the easy games, we need to win them. UTEP need the city and the fans behind them tonight to win this game. They need the spark of a sixth man on the court. UTEP has only lost once at home this season and i believe that we can win out at home. Keys to victory tonight: Make the easy baskets and free throws.
Prediction: Miners 71, Green Wave 65
