Its a big day of UTEP hoops in the Haskins Center Sunday, as the Women return action to against Texas Southern, and the Men end the night with the championship of the WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational against Denver.

After a little more than a week lay off, Keitha Adams bunch gets back on the home floor against Texas Southern.

The Miners who are 10-1 have a tough week ahead with the Tigers visiting Sunday, then next Thursday they hit the road to College Station to face the Texas A&M Aggies.

The Miner men will go up against a solid Denver squad in the night cap at 7 PM. The Miners will once again be without leading scorer McKenzie Moore who is suspended indefinitely with no time table on a return.
