Great news for a Miner fan favorite.
Highlights from Derrick Caracter's first NBA Summer League game with the Lakers. Caracter finished with 20 points and 10 boards. Not a bad start.
My bad on the Derrick Caracter to Denver deal. The Nuggets "tried like hell", but couldn't pry DC from the Lakers.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 25, 2010
Derrick Caracter being drafted is another sign that UTEP's basketball program is back on the right track.
The Dig: UTEP's volleyball star/pageant queen is off to greener pastures; Derrick Caracter is drawing rave reviews, Marshall's Hassan Whiteside isn't drawing rave reviews; and Case Keenum doesn't think Houston lost much when OC Dana Holgorsen moved on to Oklahoma State. The Dig is your best UTEP and C-USA Round-Up.
