The Aggies would fall behind 18-12 after UTEP's Gloria Brown hit a pair of free throws with 3:25 left in the half but a quick three by Jasmine Lowe would get the Aggie offense back on the board and cut the UTEP lead to just three at 18-15. Danisha Corbett would hit a pair of free throws with just over two minutes left in the half to draw the Aggies to within a point at 20-19 and the Aggies would take their first lead of the game just a few seconds later as freshman Andrea Chenier would get a steal and a breakaway layup to put the Aggies up 21-20 with 1:45 left in the half. The lead was short-lived as UTEP scored two quick baskets to take a 24-21 lead. The Miner lead would grow to five points at 26-21 after a pair of free throws by Steinberga but Madison Spence would bury a three from the corner with three seconds remaining before halftime to draw the Aggies to within a deuce at 26-24.  Continue Reading This Post >>
