Loyola New Orleans at UTEP Open Comment Thread

Basketball season is officially underway as the Miners tip the season off at home against Loyola Orleans Saturday night in the Don.

The wait is over as Tim Floyd and his UTEP Miners square off against Loyola New Orleans to tip off the 2013-14 season. The Miners will look to start the season off right with a win over the NAIA Division I Wolf Pack.

The Miners will take the floor without junior forward Cedrick Lang, but junior guard McKenzie Moore will be back in action after missing last week's exhibition. UTEP took that one by a final of 91-63.

The Wolf Pack welcome back 12 of their 13 players from a season ago, but they are a team that fell to Tulane 103-74 just a week ago. Hopefully the Miners will walk out with a similar outcome tonight!
