Cedrick Lang added 13 points and Omega Harris scored 10 for UTEP (7-4).

The Miners scored the first eight points of the game and a pair of free throws by Harris gave them a 17-3 lead with 13 minutes left in the half.

After a 3-pointer by Alcorn State's Reginald Johnson made it 23-9 about 3 minutes later, Julian Washburn hit a 3 and Hunter made a layup before a 3-pointer by Lew Stallworth pushed the UTEP lead to 31-9. The Braves trailed by at least 20 the rest of the way.
