Their fingers were gliding elegantly across their pages and typewriters, hitting each cell in order to read their notes to explain better how it works.

Tech (11-4, 2-0 Conference USA) was as flawless as you can be on defense with UTEP (10-5, 2-1 C-USA) making just five second half field goals and outrebounding the bigger Miners roster by two.
