As February nears the race for the regular season Conference USA title remains wide open.
Four teams currently have 3-2 records in league play and no team is more than three games out of first place.
UTEP (16-4, 4-1) and Memphis (15-4, 4-1) are currently tied for first place.
The Miners' sole loss came at the expense of a triple overtime loss to UAB. Since then, UTEP has reeled off three straight conference victories. Senior guard Randy Culpepper is averaging 19.7 ppg.
Memphis has also won three straight conference games after suffering a disappointing 64-58 loss at SMU.
