EL PASO, Texas (AP) - John Bohannon scored 16 points and Konner Tucker 15 to lead UTEP to a 73-58 victory against UCF on Saturday night.

UTEP (14-10, 7-4 Conference USA) came into the game aiming to tighten its defense after the Miners' two previous opponents scored 74 and 79 points while shooting 49.5 percent from the floor. That mission was accomplished, as the Knights (17-8, 7-4) shot 20 of 62 (32.3 percent) from the floor and tied their fourth-lowest point total of the season.

Tristan Spurlock had 15 points and Calvin Newell 14 for Central Florida.

A 16-4 run over a 5:43 stretch of the second half gave UTEP control. Tucker and McKenzie Moore had five points each during the surge, which culminated with Chris Washburn's jumper that made the score 57-38 with 10:22 remaining.

The Miners shot 52.9 percent (27 of 51) from the floor.
