Tamara Seda (19 points, 16 rebounds), Najala Howell (17 points) and Roeshonda Patterson (career-high 17 points) all reached double figures in scoring but UTEP dropped their first road game of the season at Arkansas State, 76-73, Tuesday evening.

The Red Wolves (4-4) set opponent season highs for points (76) and field-goal percentage (49.2) to rally past the Miners (5-2).

UTEP led 44-36 at the half but A-State used a third quarter run of 24-11 to surge into the lead and the Miners could never recover. UTEP connected on 42.9 percent (27-63) from the floor while also winning the boards (43-27) but just simply could not get enough stops.

Seda has now recorded five straight double-doubles, the longest such streak by a Miner in non-conference play since 1982-83.

“It was a strange game because it felt like we had it under control but they shot the ball incredibly well,” UTEP head coach Kevin Baker said. “We had too many turnovers in the first half. In the second half we only had five. They kind of crept back in the game. Once they got the lead we never could get it back.”

The Miners will be back in action when they play at I-10 rival NM State (2-5) at 2 p.m. MST Sunday. The game will be broadcast locally in El Paso on 600 ESPN El Paso while also being shown live on Fox Sports Southwest and Fox Sports Arizona PLUS.
