Pacific, Georgia Tech, Texas Tech, and BYU Highlight UTEP's Non-Conference Basketball Schedule


UTEP Athletics has finally released the Miners non-conference basketball schedule for the coming season. Don't forget that the Miners will also play the winner/loser of the Michigan or Syracuse game in the Legends Classic. Other than the squads I've mentioned, it's mostly cream puffs. Of course, UTEP has a home and home with NMSU right around Thanksgiving.

UTEP Offers DeAndre Daniels- ESPNU's 28th Best Prospect in 2011 Class


Kentucky is in the lead for Daniels, with Memphis, UCLA, and UNLV also in the mix. Tim Floyd is going after the very best in the country. Note that Daniels was going to reclassify, due to family reasons, to enter the 2011 class but he may be eligible for 2010- which means he might be playing D-1 ball in November.

Ballin is a Habit: UTEP's TIm Floyd Did Nothing Wrong; ESPN: Yes He Did


More fallout from ESPN over a hire that hasn't even been made official yet. First Rob Dauster of Ballin is a Habit (link above) defends the Niblett hire and notes that Floyd did nothing illegal. He also discusses the fact that the NCAA doesn't want to cut off a path for a high school coach to join the college ranks completely, so the hire Floyd made fits within the "spirit of the rule." Then, ESPN's Eamonn Brennon, link here, predictably argues that the NCAA should now ban the hire of high school coaches to college assistant jobs and to operations positions. So again, he admits that Floyd did nothing wrong, then criticizes him for doing something wrong.

Steve Kaplowitz of KROD: Randall Dickey Will Replace Tony Barbee


So, the Floyd rumors do not appear to be true. It looks like Bob Stull has tabbed one of Tony Barbee's top assistants to take over the UTEP mens basketball program. The University has not confirmed the Kaplowitz report yet.
