UTEP Sells Out The Don
EL PASO - For the first time since Tim Hardaway was playing for Don Haskins, the UTEP basketball team will play in front of a sell-out crowd in their season opener.
All 12,222 seats will be filled in the arena that now bares "The Bear's" name. The Miners will play Pacific in the opener that will feature the 1966 championship uniforms and the return of former Hakins assistant Tim Floyd to the bench.
Fans will also see the 2009-10 Conference USA championship banner raised to the rafters.
