HOUSTON (AP) Souley Boum scored a career-high 27 points, Daryl Edwards added a career-high 22 and the duo scored the last 13 points for UTEP as the Miners held off Rice 72-64 on Thursday night.
Boum shot 11-for-12 from the foul line and had four 3-pointers for UTEP (12-8, 3-4 Conference USA), while Edwards was 9-for-19 shooting and made 3-of-5 at the line.
The second half saw eight lead changes and five ties before a Boum 3-pointer put UTEP ahead for good 56-55 with six minutes left. Josh Parrish pulled the Owls to within 64-60 with under a minute to go, but Boum made 7-of-8 at the line down the stretch.
UTEP takes on North Texas on the road on Saturday. Rice plays UTSA at home on Saturday.
