The UTEP Women’s Basketball team won the 91st Battle of I-10 as they beat the New Mexico State Aggies 76-61 Wednesday night at the Don Haskins Center.

Avery Crouse led the Miners with 15 points, Katie Gallegos had 14 points, Teal Battle had 9 points, but it was the Miners’ bench play that added the spark in the first half that propelled the Miners to take a lead that they would never relinquish.

Both Brenda Fontana and Adhel Tac scored 8 points for UTEP and in the second half the Miners defense would not allow NMSU to score in the final 3 minutes of the game.
