UTEP (13-13, 4-9) finished the season winless on the road against WAC teams under first-year coach Jason Rabedeaux.

The Miners were led by Brandon Wolfram, who was 11-of-16 from the field and 3-of-3 from the 3-point line for 30 points. He had 16 of UTEP's 22 points in the first half.

Brandon Kurtz had 16 points, Marcus Hill 14 and Eric Coley 13 in the Hurricane's last home game.

Tulsa shot 51 percent from the field and was 10-of-18 from beyond the arc.

Roy Smallwood added 14 points for UTEP, which shot 47 percent from the field and was 6-of-11 on 3-pointers.

The Miners had 24 turnovers to Tulsa's 12.

UTEP tied it 12-12 on Eggie McRae's basket, but Kurtz's basket started a 22-2 run that made it 34-14 with 6:19 left in the half.

Tulsa led 46-22 at halftime, shooting 53 percent in the period to UTEP's 36.
