EL PASO, Texas (AP) _ Dave Feitl scored 17 points to lead No. 19 Texas-El Paso to a 62-52 victory over Utah Saturday in a Western Athletic Conference game.
It was the 13th straight win for the Miners, now 13-1 overall this season and 2-0 in conference play. Utah fell to 8-5 and 0-2 in the WAC.
Juden Smith was the only other Miner in double figures with 14 points.
Jerry Stroman contributed 25 points and Manuel Hendrix added 13 for Utah.
The game was tied seven times in the first half as Texas-El Paso barely managed to keep up with aggressive inside play of Utah, which built up a five- point margin twice. But the Miners soon warmed up and had a 27-24 lead at halftime.
The Miners twice had margins as mamy as 15 points in the second half.
