  • 'It's how you make history': The run that punched Toronto's first Finals ticket

    TORONTO -- There's very little about Kawhi Leonard that screams "mindfulness guru," but as the Toronto Raptors gathered on the bench during a timeout in the midst of the team's big 26-3 run in the second half, he told his teammates, "Enjoy the moment, stay here, stay together, we're good," according to Raptors guard Norman Powell.

    The Raptors did enjoy the moment, did stay together and we're so good they erased a 15-point deficit late in the third quarter in less than four minutes of game time. This explosive spurt was the most consequential stretch of basketball of the NBA postseason, vaulting Toronto to a 100-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first Finals appearance in Raptors' franchise history.

  • How Kawhi is orchestrating peak Raptors at the expense of the Bucks

    MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks had been shading Kawhi Leonard for days, taking away the largest, strongest and most decisive right hand in basketball. But with his Toronto Raptors trailing by a bucket inside of nine minutes remaining in Game 5 of an Eastern conference finals series knotted at 2-2, Leonard got a long step on his defender, Khris Middleton, and burrowed into the paint with his right.

    Leonard was low to the floor -- more a lunge than a drive -- and as his tired legs nearly lost their balance against a collapsing Milwaukee defense, he slung a pass to the left corner, where Raptors reserve guard Fred VanVleet stood waiting, unguarded.

  • El Paso Times: UTEP men's basketball program hires veteran assistant Arturo Ormond

    The UTEP men's basketball program added veteran assistant coach Arturo Ormond to complete its staff for the 2019-2020 season.

    Ormond, who most recently coached at the AAU level in California, has coached at five Division I programs, including Fresno State in the early 2000s.

    "We're excited about Arturo coming to our staff," UTEP coach Rodney Terry said. "He's a great addition and will help us develop quality student-athletes in our program."

    Ormond replaces Brian Burton, who was not retained from last year's staff.

  • El Paso Times: Senior hitters help lead UTEP softball's unlikely charge to C-USA tournament

    Video: UTEP seniors Courtney Smith and Leslie Garcia Bret Bloomquist, El Paso Times

    The UTEP softball team's charge to this week's Conference USA tournament -- when the Miners stormed down the stretch, winning six of their last nine games to earn Wednesday afternoon's game with Middle Tennessee -- was fueled in part by the big bats of Courtney Smith and Linda Garcia.

    For Smith, it's in the form of home runs, where she's now fourth on UTEP's career list with 31. For Garcia, it's her steady hitting and .308 average.

    The thing is, it wasn't always like this.

  • The Prospector: Graduate to end season with tourney success

    El Paso's own Ariel Blair, a graduating senior center fielder for the UTEP softball team, looks to close out her collegiate career with a second trip to the Conference-USA softball tournament. The Miners clinched the seventh seed in the conference tournament, winning two out of three games versus Florida International University this past weekend. Blair did her part with her first career triple, and the first run batted in this season in the Sunday matchup against the Panthers.

    The Hanks High School graduate has been a four-year starter for the Miners primarily in center field. At Hanks, she compiled a .

  • The Prospector: Miners take on Florida International with tournament opportunity in reach

    After losing two of three games to the University of Texas at San Antonio this weekend, the UTEP Miners softball team (15-31, 8-13 in C-USA) fell to fifth place in the Conference-USA West division. The top three teams in each division make the conference tournament, along with the two remaining teams with the best conference record. With tiebreakers considered, the Miners need to win only one out of the three games versus Florida International University this weekend in their regular season series finale to be wild card eligible.

    The Miners own a 7-0 record versus FIU since they have been in C-USA, and the Miners have not lost three games of a home series since 2016 against University of Alabama Birmingham.
