Thursday, February 18: The 19-5, 10-1 UTEP Men's Basketball Team prepares to take on Tulsa on Saturday, 2pm televised on CBS College Sports. Tulsa has lost three of their past four games, including a 64-58 decision to Marshall last night. Tulsa is 19-7, 8-4 in Conference USA. Tony Barbee said "What, they have won 23 straight games, or something like that in that building, so it's a hard place to play. They are a very good team and they are well coached, so, just because they lost there, it doesn't mean it's going to be easier for us to go in there and get a win. We have got a lot of good tape to watch from that game, where I can grab my guys attention because we didn't play particularly well."
Tulsa had it's home winning streak snapped by Memphis last week.
