Tulsa 65, UTEP 54

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Jarius Glenn scored 18 points, including a
late 3-pointer with a second on the shot clock, as Tulsa beat
Texas-El Paso 65-54 in a Western Athletic Conference game on
Thursday night.

Glenn's 3-pointer gave Tulsa breathing room at 59-53 with 2:15
left after the Miners had wiped out an early 17-point TU lead.

Filberto Rivera spurred a 13-2 run early in the second half as
UTEP (17-5, 7-3) tied the game at 40-40.

A 3-pointer by Brett McDade put Tulsa (5-14, 2-8) ahead to stay
at 45-42, followed by a short jumper by Oswaldo Gonzalez. McDade
made a 3-point play with 6:25 left to give Tulsa a 52-44 advantage.

UTEP pulled within 56-53 before Glenn's big 3-pointer off an
inbounds play that started with three seconds on the shot clock.

Glenn also had a career-high eight assists, five rebounds and
two steals. Anthony Price added 15 points and six rebounds and
McDade had 13 points for Tulsa, 2-8 in the WAC and 5-14 overall.

UTEP was held to 33 percent shooting (18-55), including 5-for-22
on 3-pointers. Tulsa shot 48 percent despite making just 4-of-15
3-pointers and being nearly as cold on free throws (5-14).

and Miguel Ayala with 10.
