Opening Day for Conference USA

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - 11:57pm

Tim Floyd sat in the stands and watched every dribble and every pass. For the first 20 minutes the UTEP Coach must have been putting together a game plan to play UTSA.

Floyd can throw those notes away.

East Carolina out scored The Roadrunners 41-29 in the second half and rallied for a 79-76 victory.

That means it will be UTEP against East Carolina at 6:00 on Wednesday.
