EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – When UTEP announced their 2020-21 schedule last week, the Miners let it be known it was a first draft and additional games would be added to the non-conference slate. On Monday, UTEP announced they will travel to Tempe, Arizona, to play No. 18 Arizona State on Dec. 16.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. MT at Desert Financial Arena and the game will air on the Pac-12 Network.
The Sun Devils are coached by Bobby Hurley, who enters his sixth season as head coach. ASU is picked to finish second in the Pac-12 this season.
Senior Remy Martin leads the Sun Devils as the 6-foot guard earned Associated Press (AP) Preseason All-America honors. Martin led ASU to a 20-11 overall record, averaging team bests in points per game (19.1) and assists per game (4.1).
Senior Alonzo Verge Jr. also returns for Hurley’s bunch, as the 6-foot-2 guard ranked second on the team in points (14.6 ppg) last season.
This will be the second game against a Pac-12 program for the Miners, who will also play at Arizona on Nov. 29. Tip-off is set for 4 p.m. MT at the McKale Memorial Center.
