UTEP Lady Miners What a Ride!

Don Haskins Center, El Paso Texas

29-5 … very impressive run the Lady miners had this year. Even though its not how we wanted the final outcome to be , the 9,000 + in attendance would have loved for a few more games in the WNIT to claim that Championship.

What the women did this year is set the bar high for the future players of the Women’s basketball program. Going 19-1 at home, Claiming the Regular season Conference -USA championship and playing with a defensive swagger that can be seen at the Power conference level. Defensivly UTEP was just short of 400 steals on the season, finishing with an impressive 397. #1 Starr Breedlove accounted for 107 of those steals with #24 Jenzel Nash adding in 95. Utep’s ability to create turnovers gave opponents fits and was the game changer in many of UTEP’s 29 victories.

Utep’s #2 Camaesha Turner helped get the miners on a roll with her athletic playmaker ability. Chrishauna Parker was the soul of the team that helped fuel the fire within the lady miners to be strong and confident.

UTEP’s #24 Jenzel Nash is a ball hawk, swarming to the ball and putting up shots that only some can imagine. She would help swing the moment in a flash with here aggressive drives to the paint and smooth parameter game.

Utep’s #4 Lulu Mckinney control and sweet 3 point shooting proved to be a major key in UTEP’s ability to keep up with teams that love to shoot behind the arch.

Nash , Breedlove and Turner finished with CUSA honors showing that this West Texas team out in El Paso can play ball with anyone… if you forgot about the UTEP Men’s and Women’s basketball program just look it up, and see who else in the State of Texas has a NCAA Men’s Basketball Crown…
