Officials from Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference will be meeting later this week to discuss the possibility of forming a complete merger between the two leagues. As of now, the agreement has been for football only, but yesterday's departure of Memphis from C-USA has left C-USA in a tough spot moving forward. At this point, a full merger may be the best/only move for all schools involved.

Miner Memories: "Good Defense and Good Rebounding Will Overcome Fate". Featuring The Bear, and Miner greats like Marlon Maxey, David Van Dyke, Prince Stewart, and Eddie Rivera.

After dropping the 8 seed Evansville, the Miners moved on to take out top seeded Kansas to reach the Sweet 16 for the first time since winning it all in 1966. Unfortunately, the Miners fell in the Sweet 16 to eventual Final Four participant Cincinnati 69-67. But, that team will go down in UTEP history as one of the best to ever don the Orange and Blue.
