UTEP at Middle Tennessee
Radio: 600 ESPN El Paso
Our only option seems to be radio and ESPN3. Vegas has the Blue Raiders favored to win by 7.
The last meeting between these teams was on January 30 when the Miners survived 67-66. The game was not as close as the score implies but the Blue Raiders mounted a furious comeback to end the game. Luckily the Miners got the last possession at just the right time.
Bryson Williams had 28 points and 10 rebounds but the bigger story was Efe's 15 points and 10 rebounds. Efe and Williams played very well together. The week before Efe had missed the bus to Houston to play Rice. The next week he practiced with a fury that carried over into the Middle Tenn game.
Middle is now 7-22 overall, 3-13 in conference and 4-9 at home.
The Canary predicts a Miner victory. Middle is under 50% at home and has won 1 of their last 6 games and just got beat by 11 points at Rice.
I'll add more until the next game.
I really like how Edwards has carried this team. Looks like he lid a spark on them. I am hoping for a Miner victory, but it's a road game. Either way, they have 2 chances to make it. Let's hope they seal the deal tonight!
I'm frustrated that I can't watch this game. I can't get cable out here in woods and I already used up by Sling trial and it'd cost $30 to watch one game. I've seen every viewable game since the beginning of the season. Oh well, I'll have Teich in my ears like the old days.
Yes, Edwards is exceeding expectations. Lets hope it's contagious.
The team has come back to life. I'm expecting a big game from Odigie. He and Williams made a great pair last time we played Middle. And I suspect we haven't seen the last of Vila. He's getting splinters on the bench. Maybe he'll have a spark when he gets back on the floor.
And, Edwards increased intensity has really helped guard play overall.
Half time and I can only listen. Sounds like enough bricks have been manufactured to finish that damned wall along the Rio.
Damn. Edwards busted lip. That's not going to help.
This game is going to the wire.
The miners managed to win with Williams being smothered.
