East Carolina Coach Jeff Lebo on UTEP:
"It's a tough situation for us. We are real thin with injuries and having to turn around and play Tim's team here on the road will be a hostile environment. It will be a tough matchup. I think Tim does as good of a coaching job as anybody I've gone against. He'll have them ready to play. They're as good against a zone as any team we'll play this year. I guarantee he won't get 19 looks from the three tomorrow night."
