Final thoughts: For the Miners to win this game tonight they must have a strong fan base heading out to Las Cruces with them. If UTEP can feel like they are at home (while being away), we might see a great game on our hands. The Miners must use their brains and not take so many 3 point shots if they get down. It is simple, drive to the lane and get mental with NMSU. If we can shake up their mind and destroy their game plan, UTEP should have another season sweep of their I-10 rivals.

Prediction: Miners 62, Aggies 56
