UTEP women's basketball team will open the C-USA tournament Thursday against either Charlotte, LA Tech or North Texas at 5 PM in Memorial Gym. The Miners finished 23-6 overall and third place in the conference behind league Champion Middle Tennessee, and Southern Miss. who placed second.
Biggest story for the Miners is the health of Kayla Thornton, she has missed the past two games with a concussion and her status for Thursday is still un-certain.
Still this UTEP team is deep, and if they can defend, and take care of the ball, watch out, these ladies are experienced and battle tested.
