EL PASO, Texas (AP) Jordan Lathon converted a go-ahead 3-point play, Efe Odigie scored a career-high 26 points and pulled down 11 rebounds and UTEP used a late surge to hold off UC Riverside 71-56 on Sunday.

Paul Thomas buried an answering 3, Lathon grabbed the rebound of a Riverside miss, scored on the fast break and was fouled, the 3-point play boosting the Miners ahead 49-48. UTEP sprinted away on an 18-5 run over the next five minutes.

Lathon finished with 14 points, making 7 of 10 at the free-throw line, Odigie made 10 of 11 at the line and UTEP was 24 of 34 on 24 Riverside fouls. The Highlanders (3-8) were 6-for-11 free-throw shooting.
