The Mine / Paul Thomas- Basketball recruit
« Last post by stanman505 on Today at 04:17:12 PM »
Something I found from his twitter.  It is him talking to whom I believe to be his AAU coach about his visit to UTEP so far.  He was at TTU last weekend.  He is a lot like Vince Hunter and it would be great to have him sign with UTEP.

                                Aztecs beat Rebels in double OT thriller

The El Dorado Aztecs are no stranger to pulling out close games this season.

So on Friday night when the going got tough, the Aztecs got going and pulled off an exciting 51-44 double overtime win against Midland Lee at the Socorro Student Activities Complex.

The Aztecs are now 4-0 heading into the start of District 1-6A play next week, while Midland Lee falls to 1-3 and lost its second game to an El Paso team this year. Coronado beat the Rebels 46-32 two weeks ago.

“An unbelievable win for our kids,” said an elated Aztecs coach Jim Althoff, whose team beat Eastlake 31-23 and Frenship 49-42 in close games earlier this season. “We made some mistakes that hurt us early on and Midland Lee played well. But we hung tough and our kids showed tons of determination. I’m proud of them.”

The Rebels, who were coming off a 56-6 loss to power Southlake Carroll, took a 37-31 with 1:19 left in regulation on a 1-yard scoring run by Aron Dobbins. The talented running back finished with 268 yards rushing.

But the Aztecs, who led 17-15 at halftime, tied it with 24 seconds left on a 13-yard pass from Austyn Hill to Cameron Covington. Covington helped set up the score with a 31-yard kickoff return to the Rebels 49. A pass interference penalty and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the Rebels aided the Aztecs drive. El Dorado, which lost to Midland Lee in last year’s playoffs, could have won the game in regulation but the point after attempt by Marco Hernandez was blocked.

The Rebels scored first in the first overtime period on a 25-yard touchdown pass from Wesley Hall to Rueben Clark to go up 44-37. But El Dorado took just one play to tie it at 44-44 on a Sergio Gonzalez 25-yard scoring run, his fourth touchdown of the game. He finished with 228 yards rushing.

In the second overtime period, the Aztecs got the ball first and Hill connected with 6-foot-4 receiver Torian Jordan on a 26-yard touchdown pass when Jordan outjumped the Midland Lee defender for the score and a 51-44 lead.

Lee had one more chance to tie or win but Dobbins fumbled the ball away on its next possession. Felix Chvez may be reached at 546-6167.

Auburns big ass defensive front line kept K State at bay. Yes they will get points, but if Kuglar stays dominant with the run and doesn't use his last possession on crap that confuses everyone, they should have a shot. I would love to see Jones and our young line just freak that defense out like we did against Houston a few years ago at home.

With type of running game UTEP has this year. You'd figure they'd have a few play action plays or the option mixed in there. But hey, im not the coach! Thats why coach Kug is at the helm! Lol. But none the less, Go Miners!!!

Maybe it's the angle, but the screen looks like it blocks the views of the top rows in that section.

I watched the game and came away thinking we can run on these guys.  And if we can run on these guys, they will spend a lot of time watching us do it.  They are going to get their points but I like our chances.
