Wednesday, March 31: In less than one week, UTEP Basketball lost a coach (Tony Barbee to Auburn), hired a new one (Tim Floyd), and tried to stay intact. Several reports have Junior Forward Derrick Caracter signing with an agent, meaning he will be ineligible for college basketball next season. Newschannel 9 caught up with Conference Player of the Year Randy Culpepper to discuss the team, and if there will be any more deflections in the coming days. Randy Culpepper said, "My understanding is that everyone is coming back. Yeah, Derrick Caracter is leaving, but that shouldn't stop us from accomplishing what we want to accomplish, but from my understanding, everybody is coming back." When asked if he expects Arnette Moultrie to return, Randy said, "Most Definitely."
