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.
