Ex-Miner and former NBA All-Star, speaking at a charity golf tournament last week, weighed in on Miner basketball and how he feels about Tim Floyd's return to El Paso.
"The Miners have missed somebody that is family. That cares about the team. That cares about the city. That wants to interact with the people and Tim Floyd is that person" said Hardaway.
He echoed that Floyd's resume speaks for itself and believes UTEP will have similar success in the future.
Hardaway currently serves as Community Liaison for the Miami Heat and assists in coaching point guards.
UTEP's season begins next Saturday when they face Eastern New Mexico in an exhibition at the Don Haskins Center.
