UTEP Men's Basketball Receives Votes in AP, USA Today Polls

New, 6 comments

A 6-0 start and a championship run in the Corpus Christi Coastal Classic has the Miners off to a good start, and the national polls tend to agree.

Coach Tim Floyd has the Miners off to a 6-0 start for the first time since the 2000-2001 season, and already has his team receiving votes in both the AP Top 25 and USA Today/Coaches Poll.

The Miners will look to continue to their run this week as they take on New Mexico State Wednesday night in Las Cruces, before returning home to meet up with a tough UT-Arlington squad on Saturday.
