Lady Miners Fight off Arkansas State, Advance to Sweet 16 of the Women’s NIT 

El Paso Texas, 

The lady miners looked to continue their journey to a Women’s NIT championship this Monday when they faced off with the Red Wolves of Arkansas State. This proved to be one of UTEPs toughest battles of the season as the miners quickly took a commanding lead. The Arkansas State battled back in the second half by hitting some shots behind the arch to cut the deficit to 3 with a couple minutes to go. The Miner Nation came alive in the closing minutes to help provide the spark as UTEP pressed the Red wolves and forcing key turnovers to swing the score back in their favor! UTEP was much better this round at the free throw line which provided much need gap as Arkansas State battled  back. UTEP Jenzel Nash came up with a key steal on Arkansas State Aundrea Gamble late in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory for the lady miners! 

Next up for the Lady Miners a Sweet 16 matchup with the Lady Horned Frogs of TCU of the BIG XII conference. Game time is slated for Thursday March 24 at 7:05pm at The Don Haskins Center 🏀⛏
