"O.T. in El Paso"
Wow! Our guys played their hearts out. We played hard and were in position to beat UTEP on the road, but couldn’t hold on. I am proud of our guys as they continue to compete given our record.

Coach Fogler then went on to coach at Vanderbilt and South Carolina. He is a terrific basketball mind. He said the only way to get experience is to play the game.
