UTPB still has hope for the postseason

Local Sports

Despite a loss last Saturday, the UTPB men’s basketball team can still make the Lone Star Conference Tournament.

Head Coach Josh Newman had said the game against Western New Mexico was a must-need win going into Saturday, but he said luckily all of the other teams fighting for those last spots also lost last weekend.

The Falcons have two more regular season games left on the schedule that will ultimately determine their postseason fate.

“They understand. They’ve looked at the standings. They got a breath of fresh air because we thought if we lost that game to Western, we didn’t have a chance but for us – everybody lost that’s in the race right now,” Newman said.
