UTEP Adds Former McDonald’s All-American to Hoops Roster

UTEP has bolstered its backcourt for the 2017-18 season with the addition of former McDonald’s All-American Keith Frazier to the roster. 

The graduate transfer was admitted to school on Tuesday and will have one year of eligibility with the Miners, pending the approval of a medical redshirt for the 2016-17 season.  He will be pursuing his Master’s degree in leadership studies.

“We are looking forward to integrating Keith into what we think can be a very fine basketball team,” UTEP coach Tim Floyd said.  “He is going to bring some experience, and some winning experience from his days with Larry Brown at SMU.  He is a proven scorer, and a very versatile player who can play multiple positions.  We are adding another perimeter player who can shoot the basketball.  We look forward to working with Keith and hope he has a great year for the Miners.”

The 6-5, 190-pound Frazier spent part of last season at North Texas, averaging 8.0 points and 3.5 rebounds in four games.

He played his prep ball at Kimball High School in Dallas.  Frazier garnered McDonald’s All-American honors as a senior after averaging 23.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists while shooting 43 percent from three-point land for the 4A state finalists.  He was also an All-State honoree, was rated as high as no. 18 nationally, and was appointed the Dallas Morning News Area Player of the Year. 

Frazier led Kimball High to the Class 4A state title as a junior, averaging 21.7 points, 8.1 rebounds and 7.3 assists.

Frazier spent the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons at SMU, during a period where the Mustangs posted 79 victories and played in the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

He appeared in 63 games for SMU, scoring 493 points (7.8 ppg) with 178 rebounds (2.8 rpg), 73 assists (1.2 apg), 22 blocks (0.3 bpg) and 40 steals (0.6 spg).  He shot 43.2 percent (174-for-403) from the field, 37.1 percent (79-for-213) from three-point range and 78.6 percent (66-for-84) from the line.  He scored a career-high 23 points against Brown and New Hampshire during the 2015-16 season.

During the 2014-15 campaign, he recorded his first career double-double versus Illinois-Chicago with 16 points and 10 rebounds, and scored 20 points against UC Santa Barbara.

Video+Story: Miners End Costa Rica Road Trip With Victory Over UBC 78-73

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA – The UTEP men’s basketball team wrapped up a productive three-game stint in Costa Rica with a 78-73 triumph over the University of British Columbia on Friday morning.

The Miners had a big second quarter, outscoring UBC 16-4 to instate a 39-27 halftime lead.  They led by as many as 15 points (68-53) in the second half, shooting 47.6 percent (30-for-63) from the field on the day.  A 12-0 run to start the second period enabled the Miners to pull away from a 23-23 deadlock at the end of the first quarter.

UTEP played three games in San Jose, dropping a pair of tight decisions to another Canadian team, McGill University (56-54 and 86-82) on Wednesday and Thursday.  Earlier this month, McGill took SMU to overtime and beat Kent State, a 22-game winner and NCAA Tournament participant in 2016-17.

In the end the trip to Costa Rica wasn’t about wins and losses, it was about building team chemistry while affording coach Tim Floyd and his staff the opportunity to experiment with numerous lineup combinations.

“It’s about trying to get some of our younger guys minutes and putting them in situations that they haven’t been in,” Floyd said.  “There were times that we played three big guys, times that we played three point guards, times that we moved Isiah Osborne from small forward to the point, just because we know that throughout the course of the season we’re going to be in those situations.”

The statistics show that 12 of the 13 Miners who made the trip saw action over the last three days.  Freshman guard Evan Gilyard was with the team but didn’t play while nursing a shoulder injury.

Sophomore guard Isiah Osborne led the team in minutes (94, 31.3 avg.), while seven Miners were on the floor for 50 minutes or more.  Osborne and freshman guard Trey Wade paced the squad with 11.3 points per game, while sophomore center Kelvin Jones averaged 10.3 ppg, senior center Matt Willms 9.0 ppg, senior guard Omega Harris 8.3 ppg and junior forward Paul Thomas 8.3 ppg.

Osborne was the leading rebounder with 6.0 per game, while Wade posted a double-double against UBC with 16 points and 11 boards.

The trip wasn’t just about basketball.  The Miners toured San Jose, visited a local orphanage, sampled the local culture and food, and have more activities planned on Saturday before returning to El Paso on Sunday morning.

The team will take a break from mandatory activities until early October when practice officially resumes for the 2017-18 season.  UTEP already has a major head start on the upcoming campaign with three games and 16 practices under its belt.

“I thought it was a good week,” Floyd said.  “We know that we’ve got a lot of work to do in October, but every team does.  I like the fact that our guys were able to bond and get together.  We didn’t play Matt Willms any minutes.  We tried to play Kelvin Jones a lot of minutes. We didn’t play Paul Thomas and Omega Harris today because it wasn’t about any of those things, and it hasn’t been for the last three days.  This is going to be a good basketball team before the season is over, and I think this experience is really going to help us.”

Adios, Miners! UTEP Hoopsters Headed to Costa Rica Tuesday

The UTEP men’s basketball team will embark on its first foreign tour in 12 years on Tuesday.

The Miners will spend four full days in Costa Rica, where they will play three games versus Canadian teams while sampling the culture and landscape of the beautiful Central American country.

“Ideally what we’d like out of this trip is for everybody to get a lot of minutes,” UTEP coach Tim Floyd said.  “We’ve got three ballgames.  We’d like for our players to play in different situations, different roles.  We might have big lineups out there with big guards.  We might have three small guards out there at one time, and two bigs at one time.  We’re hoping for some kind of carryover from what we’ve worked on in practice.  We’d like to come out of this injury-free and we’d like to come out of it a more experienced team.”

The Miners will depart for Dallas on Tuesday morning, and arrive in San Jose at 6 p.m. local time.  They have games scheduled versus McGill University on Wednesday (7 p.m.) and Thursday (5 p.m.), and the University of British Columbia on Friday (11:30 a.m.).  The team will arrive in El Paso mid-afternoon on Sunday after enjoying an off-day Saturday.

The Miners’ visit will include a tour of San Jose on Wednesday, a visit to the Holy Spirit orphanage on Thursday, a walk across a crocodile bridge on Friday and a Zip Line experience on Saturday.

From a basketball standpoint, the Miners will take on a McGill University team out of Montreal that has already played four games versus Division I opponents this month.  The Redmen lost to Alabama (96-57), SMU (86-83 in overtime) and Towson (84-53) in Montreal and beat Kent State (85-79) on Monday afternoon in Costa Rica.

The starting lineup for the first game against McGill University, based on a fan vote, will feature three freshmen – forward Tirus Smith and guards Evan Gilyard and Trey Wade, who will joined by senior forward Jake Flaggert and senior center Matt Willms.

NCAA teams are permitted to take foreign tours once every four years.  The 2005-06 Miners went to Madrid and the Canary Islands and also played three games versus Telde, UD Vecindario and Gran Canaria.

UTEP Releases 2017-18 Men’s Basketball Schedule

The return of the New Mexico Lobos to the Don Haskins Center, a matchup with Washington State in “The Bear’s Den” and participation in the preseason Puerto Rico Tip-Off highlight the 2017-18 UTEP men’s basketball schedule, released on Wednesday.

“Our home schedule has been upgraded with Washington State and the Lobos, who have been our biggest rivals for nearly 90 years,” UTEP coach Tim Floyd said.  “The series makes sense, and I applaud the administration at New Mexico for recognizing that.  We like the multi-team event in Puerto Rico because of the quality of the opponents, including a potential matchup with 2017 Final Four participant South Carolina.

The WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational has an NCAA Tournament team from a year ago in North Carolina Wilmington.  We always try to schedule teams that will prepare us well for a strong conference slate.”

The Miners, who return four starters and five of their top six scorers from last year’s squad that tied for third place in Conference USA with a 12-6 mark, will tip-off the campaign with the annual Orange & White Scrimmage on Oct. 21 at the Haskins Center.  Following a pair of exhibitions versus Sul Ross State (Oct. 28) and Western New Mexico (Nov. 3), the regular season will get underway in El Paso against Louisiana College on Nov. 10.

The Miners will join Appalachian State, Boise State, Illinois State, Iowa State, South Carolina, Tulsa and Western Michigan in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, with games scheduled for Nov. 16, 17 and 19 at the Tomás Dones Coliseum in Fajardo, P.R.  Iowa State joined South Carolina in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, while Boise State and Illinois State appeared in the NIT.

The Miners will lock up with I-10 rival NM State twice in six days, beginning on Nov. 25 in Las Cruces.

UTEP will begin a stretch of nine consecutive home games against Lamar, a 19-game winner and Tournament entry last season, on Nov. 27.  The Miners will play back-to-back rivalry games in the Haskins Center against NM State (Nov. 30) and New Mexico (Dec. 2), prior to completing a four-game series with the Cougars out of the Pac-12 Conference on Dec. 9.

New Mexico will be making its first appearance in the Don Haskins Center since January 2, 2008.

After a 10-day break for finals, UTEP will host Incarnate Word (Dec. 19) prior to battling Howard (Dec. 21) in the first round of the 56th annual WestStar Bank Don Haskins Sun Bowl Invitational.  The Miners will meet either North Carolina Wilmington (29 wins/NCAA Tournament in ’16-17) or North Dakota State (19 wins in ’16-17) on day two of the tourney Dec. 22.

The Miners will be home for the entire month of December for the first time since 2012, and only the second time since 2005.

The 18-game Conference USA schedule tips off at home versus North Texas on Dec. 28, the earliest date of a league opener since 2001.  It marks only the second time in the modern era (since 1965) that the Miners will launch conference play prior to the new year.

“There are always challenging games both home and on the road in conference play,” Floyd said.  “Because there are 14 teams, it’s hard to tell who the frontrunners will be.  There are teams coming to our place that have always presented problems.  And we have three very difficult road trips against teams that we have struggled against away from home.”

The Miners will face all three C-USA Texas schools – North Texas, Rice, UTSA – twice each for only the second time in four years.  The Miners will also play LA Tech and Southern Miss twice.  Single games are scheduled versus Charlotte (away), FIU (home), Florida Atlantic (home), Marshall (home), Middle Tennessee (away), Old Dominion (away), UAB (away) and WKU (home).

UTEP will have a three-game C-USA road swing Jan. 20-27 (at UTSA, at UAB, at Middle Tennessee), followed by a three-game homestand Feb. 1-10 (WKU, Marshall, UTSA).  The Miners will start and end their league slate against North Texas and Rice.  The Mean Green and the Owls will serve as UTEP’s first two league opponents for the third time in four years.

The Conference USA Championship is slated for March 7-10 at The Star in Frisco, Texas. UTEP Basketball season tickets, starting at $160, are on sale now by calling (915) 747-6150.

C-USA Basketball Championships Moving to Frisco, Texas

Conference USA Commissioner Judy MacLeod announced today the 2018 and 2019 Conference USA Men’s & Women’s Basketball Championships will be hosted at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas, in partnership with the University of North Texas, the Dallas Cowboys and Visit Frisco.

Baylor Scott & White Sports Therapy & Research at The Star will be the presenting sponsor of the 2018 C-USA Basketball Championships, which are scheduled for Wednesday, March 7 through Saturday, March 10, with all 22 games – 11 men’s and 11 women’s games – being held at The Star. The conference champions receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.

“We are really excited about the Conference USA Championships moving to Frisco,” said UTEP men’s basketball coach Tim Floyd.  “It’s the second-most ideal location for us outside of El Paso.  With our fans being able to drive to Dallas, plus the large alumni base that we have all over the state, we would hope for a tremendous turnout of UTEP supporters.”

“Frisco is a great venue for the Conference USA Championships,” said UTEP women’s basketball coach Kevin Baker.  “The quality of basketball that will be on display is reason enough to attend, but Frisco also offers a tremendous geographic location with restaurants and hotels all within walking distance of the arena.  It’s a terrific place for student-athletes and fans to have a memorable experience.”

Frisco will be the eighth location to host the C-USA Men’s Basketball Championship and the 13th host city for the C-USA Women’s Basketball Championship.  UTEP hosted the 2011 and 2014 Men’s and Women’s Championship.

Ticket information will be announced this fall.

Baker Finalizes UTEP Women’s Basketball Coaching Staff

Nicole Dunson (UTSA), Michael Madrid (San Jacinto College) and Lori Morris (Southwestern College) will venture to the Sun City to join the UTEP women’s basketball program as full-time assistant coaches, head coach Kevin Baker announced Tuesday.

The group brings wide-ranging experience to a UTEP program that has produced the third-highest winning percentage in the state of Texas since 2006-07.

“I am beyond excited about the coaching staff that we were able to put in place,” Baker said. “I consider this to be an all-star cast of coaches. All three of our new staff members worked hard to build their careers the old fashioned way. They earned it. My goal was to surround myself with the most talented, hardest working, and well connected coaches available. I feel that we now have a coaching staff in place that will rival any other program in the nation.”

A bio on each of the individuals, along with a quote by Baker, follows below.

Nicole Dunson

UTSA, 2005/2007

Dunson joins UTEP after spending the past four years as an assistant coach with Conference USA rival UTSA. She oversaw the guard development while also aiding in the day-to-day responsibilities with the squad.  She helped the Roadrunners make a smooth transition into C-USA; they piled up 54 total wins in that time frame while also garnering a fourth-place finish (2014-15) and a seventh-place showing (2016-17).

Prior to returning to her alma mater, Dunson enjoyed a successful two-year run as the head girls’ varsity basketball coach at Richard King High School in Corpus Christi. She guided her charges to the 2011-12 District 28-5A Championship in addition to a berth in the state playoffs in each of the seasons. The Corpus Christi native also was selected to coach in the 2013 CBCA All-Star Game.

Her initial head coaching experience came at the helm of San Antonio’s Hartlandale High School girls’ basketball program. She also was the head junior varsity track & field coach while also serving as a health and physical education teacher. Dunson embarked on her coaching career as head coach for the girls U14 Shooting Stars Basketball AAU program in 2006.

As a student-athlete Dunson played two years with UCF before transferring to UTSA. She sat out the 2002-03 season due to NCAA transfer rules and the following campaign while recovering from a right knee injury. Dunson proved to be worth the wait, accounting for 8.8 points/game while draining 42 percent from 3-point range in her first year. Upon the conclusion of her senior season she was chosen as the 2005-06 Southland Conference Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Year. She drilled 44.1 percent from distance to place 18th nationally. Moreover she garnered the Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar award in 2006 and was named a CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VI honoree. To this day Dunson holds the UTSA single-season and career mark in 3-point field goal percentage.

Dunson earned her degree in biology from UTSA in 2005 before going to secure a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in sports psychology two years later.

“Everything about Nicole Dunson screams winner and success. Nicole is the type of coach who has worked for everything she has ever gotten in the game of basketball. She was a very hard working and successful player that battled injuries and overcame them. She cut her teeth at the high school level and earned a place on staff at UTSA.  From there she became a fantastic recruiter and on-the-floor coach. The amount of impact she will have in our program will be immeasurable. Nicole is one of the most talented up-and-coming coaches in the country.” – UTEP head coach Kevin Baker

Michael Madrid

Eastern New Mexico, 1998

Madrid has an impressive resume with ample experience at both the high school (10 years) and college levels (13 years). Most recently he put together a record-setting run in two years with San Jacinto College while forging a combined record of 46-20. In 2016-17 the squad rolled to a mark of 24-9 while making the NJCAA Tournament for the first time in the college’s history. San Jacinto went 22-11 in 2015-16 and earned the Region XIV Tournament Runner-up honors, which at the time was the farthest any women’s basketball team at the college had ever advanced. The squad knocked off nationally-ranked Trinity Valley to secure the spot in the title tilt before ultimately falling to Blinn College.

Prior to this tenure at San Jacinto, he won 24 games in his first opportunity to serve as a head coach over two season with Paris Junior College. Immediately beforehand he was an assistant coach at Texas Woman’s University for a trio of seasons, helping the Pioneers win their first Lone Star Conference tournament championship in any sport and advance to the National Collegiate Athletic Association South Central Region tournament.

Lori Morris

University of San Diego, 1984/Azusa Pacific, 1990

Prior to entering the collegiate ranks Morris had an outstanding 20-year run as the head coach of the Montgomery High School girls’ basketball team from 1987-07. She assumed the position after serving as an assistant coach in 1986-87. She developed 18 players who went on to compete at either the junior-college or university level.

Lori brings over 30 years of experience to the table as a high school coach, junior college coach, Division I recruiting coordinator, and a Division III head coach.  Lori has coached all over the country and has built up a network of coaches and a trusted coaching tree that one must have to be successful at this level. Lori has great energy and work ethic which benefit our program and our players.”- UTEP head coach Kevin Baker

UTEP Alumni form ‘Glory Road Boys’ Basketball Team; Need Fan Votes to Make $2m Nat’l Tourney

Several well-known Miners have formed an alumni basketball team and, with the support and votes from UTEP fans, hope to make a national tournament that pays the winners $2million for the win.

The team, known as the ‘Glory Road Boys’, is made up of five former players: Omar Duran, Earvin Morris, Brent Murphy, Ioana Tofi and Jason Williams.  The team is looking to make the The Basketball Tournament (TBT), a national basketball tournament to be held this summer, similar in structure to the NCAA’s annual college basketball tournament.

The main difference, according to the TBT website, is 64 teams (with 16 in each region) are either selected based on their fan vote totals or play their way into the tournament.

The top nine (9) vote-getters in each region as of June 1 @ 12p ET get in automatically. Six (6) additional teams in each region will be chosen at-large.

The final team in each region will play-in through the TBT Jamboree in Philadelphia, set for June 17th and 18th.

The winner-take-all $2 million purse is divided among the team, their coach, a booster, a top fan and 99 other fans who voted their team into the 64-team tournament.

The bio for the ‘Glory Road Boys’ reads as follows:

“We are very excited for the opportunity to represent our University and the great city of El Paso. Our identity comes primarily from our school’s great basketball tradition. The fact that UTEP is the only school from Texas to win a National Championship is astonishing considering all the great Universities and tradition of great players from Texas. Also for the fact that the Disney movie Glory Road demonstrated how the 1966 team broke color barriers and changed basketball is very appealing to some who might not know the story behind it. We also have a strong competitive players that are elite on their teams overseas and want to represent a great basketball alumni group of UTEP.”—Omar Duran, GM

Should the team get the required number of fans signed up and voting, the team would be part of the West Region.  To sign up to vote and support the team, click HERE.

Kevin Baker Named UTEP Women’s Basketball Head Coach

UTEP Director of Athletics Bob Stull announced on Monday that Kevin Baker has been appointed as the eighth head coach in UTEP women’s basketball history.

“We are very pleased to introduce Kevin Baker as our head women’s basketball coach,” Stull said.  “We had tremendous interest nationally for this position, and it was really difficult going through the process of narrowing it down to the type of person that we wanted to lead this program.  In the end, no one could match the level of success that he has achieved, winning over 300 games and setting school records for victories at every stage of his coaching career.  He is a personable and energetic young man and a great fit for UTEP and the El Paso community.”

“I’d like to thank Dr. Diana Natalicio and Bob Stull for giving me the opportunity to lead the UTEP women’s basketball program,” Baker said.  “I am truly honored to take the reins of a program that has enjoyed so much success.  Coach Adams had an amazing run here for 16 years.  She really put UTEP women’s basketball on the map, and my goal is to build on what she has already accomplished.”

Baker comes to El Paso from Angelo State University, where he posted a combined record of 50-14 in two seasons (2015-17).  Baker was also the head coach at the University of Texas Tyler from 2012-15, fashioning a 72-16 mark.  His combined college coaching record is 122-30.

Overall Baker is 344-131 in a coaching career that has also taken him to four high schools in the state of Texas — Commerce (1997-98), Palestine (1998-2000), Nacogdoches (2000-03) and Copperas Cove (2004-07).  He has set school records for wins at every stop of his career, and has taken every school to the playoffs with a total of five district championships.  He is an eight-time Coach of the Year.

More recently, Baker’s teams captured back-to-back conference championships at UT-Tyler and Angelo State.  He led Angelo State to a 26-6 mark in 2016-17, including the school’s first-ever NCAA Sweet 16 appearance and a runner-up finish in the NCAA South Central Regional.

Baker has led both a Division II (Angelo State) and Division III (UT-Tyler) school to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

His 2016-17 Angelo State squad was ranked as high as second in the nation, earning him Conference Coach of the Year honors for the fourth consecutive season.  The Rambelles were 24-8 in 2015-16, reaching the NCAA Regional semifinals.

He compiled marks of 18-9 (2012-13), 27-4 (2013-14) and 27-3 (2014-15) in three seasons at UT-Tyler.  The Patriots won the American Southwest Conference title in 2014 and 2015, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 in 2014.  He was ASC Coach of the Year all three seasons.

Baker spent the previous five years (2007-12) as an assistant coach at Division II West Texas A&M University, where he was part of a run to 120 victories including a 30-4 campaign in 2009-10.  The Lady Buffs were a top-10 team nationally all five seasons, were ranked fourth in 2007-08, and advanced to the NCAA Tournament on four occasions.

West Texas A&M won back-to-back-to-back Lone Star Conference titles (2008-10) and made an Elite Eight appearance in 2009.  West Texas A&M also posted the no. 5 team GPA in the country in 2007-08.

In 10 seasons as a high school head coach, Baker put together three seasons with 29 or more wins.  He was a combined 222-101 in the prep ranks.  Highlights included a 29-4 mark at Palestine High School (4A) in 1999-2000, a school-record for victories, and District, Bi-District and Area championships.

His 2002-03 Nacogdoches team was 30-4, a school-record for wins, with District and Bi-District titles.  His final high school team, at Copperas Cove (2006-07), was 32-3 with Area and Bi-District championships and a Regional Semifinal berth.

Baker received his Bachelor of Science degree (Kinesiology) and Masters of Education from Stephen F. Austin in 1994 and 1996, respectively.  He began his coaching career as an assistant girls basketball coach at Hudson High School in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas in 1994.
