Recap: Tulane vs. Texas-El Paso

New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Konner Tucker paced the Miners with 14 points as Texas-El Paso picked up a 66-57 victory over the Tulane Green Wave in the Conference USA opener for both sides at Devlin Fieldhouse.

Julian Washburn chipped in 12 points for UTEP (7-6, 1-0 C-USA), which picked up its fourth win in its last five outings. Jacques Street chipped in 10 points and six assists to help the Miners notch their first true road win of the year.

Ricky Tarrant paced Tulane (12-4, 0-1) with 18 points on 5-of-15 shooting from the field. Josh Davis and Tre Drye both contributed nine points and nine rebounds each for the Green Wave, which lost at home for the first time this season after winning its first 10 at Devlin Fieldhouse.

The Miners built a 17-6 lead just over nine minutes after tip-off, but Tulane fought back the rest of the way and Drye closed out the half with a dunk that narrowed the deficit to 28-26 at the intermission. UTEP's bench provided 10 points in the opening 20 minutes help it go in front, but it was lucky to be in front as Tulane went just 4-of-10 at the charity stripe before halftime.

UTEP converted 52.2 percent of its field goal attempts in the final 20 minutes and led by as many as 15 before arriving at the nine-point decision.
