The C-USA Mens Tournament has come to El Paso and tonight, UTEP steps up!

The UTEP Miners have done pretty good this year, with 22 wins to their credit and a conference USA record of 12-4.  Not enough to earn them a break so tonight, the push really begins.  Can they win 4 games in 4 days?

If they do, they're in the "big dance".  With a possible trip to the NCAA tournament on the line, Head Coach Tim Floyd says that "4 in 4" goal is exactly what they are NOT going to focus on:

"You will see players play harder than they have all year, coaches coach harder than they have coached all year, officials trying to get in the NCAA Tournament. This is great for a town that loves basketball. "But we are not approaching this as four games in four days." "It's easy to get caught up in four games in four days. We are not doing that."

That being said, I can already hear Miner fans chanting it in the streets; "4 in 4... 4 in 4!!"
