Celebrate National Girls And Women In Sports Day With UTEP Basketball Thursday
Feb. 23, 2011
EL PASO, TEXAS- As part of the celebration of National Girls & Women in Sports Day, there will be free admission for the UTEP women basketball team's home game against Southern Miss at 7:05 p.m. MST Thursday.
The Miners (13-12, 5-8 C-USA), 11-4 in El Paso in 2010-11, will be looking to extend their streak of at least 12 home triumphs to a school-record five straight seasons. Prior to head coach Keitha Adams' arrival, UTEP only registered 12 home wins once (12-1, 1988-89).
Standing in the way of that feat will be the Lady Eagles (10-16, 5-8 C-USA), who are tied with the Miners in the Conference USA standings.
The home contest is the first of the two this week for the Orange and Blue, who will play host to rival SMU at 2:05 p.m. MST Sunday. It will be "Senior Day," and as part of "Take A Kid To The Game" promotion kids will receive free admission.
