NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Konner Tucker scored 14 points and Texas-El
Paso defeated Tulane 66-57 Wednesday night in the Conference USA

The Miners (7-6, 1-0), who led just 28-26 at halftime, outscored
the Green Wave 38-31 in the second half. UTEP scored 18 of the
first 23 points after the break to open up a 46-31 lead. Tulane
(12-4, 0-1) would cut that lead to single digits with just under
4:00 left, but never got closer than five points.

Tucker's 14 points included 12 on four 3-pointers. The Miners
were 6 of 13 from long range, Tulane just 3 of 14.
