EL PASO, Texas - A pizza restaurant wants to recognize the University of Texas at El Paso's win against West Alabama Sunday.
Papa John's Pizza is giving customers 50 percent off all their orders made Monday.
A post from the UTEP Athletics Department stated the discount was because the Miners scored more than 60 points.
Vince Hunter scored 14 points, on 5-of-6 shooting, and grabbed eight rebounds to lead UTEP to a 67-46 win over West Alabama Sunday.
The Miners opened the game with a 12-3 run, capped by McKenzie Moore's jumper with just under 13 minutes left in the first half. UTEP would push it lead 12 with 7:09 remaining in the first, but back-to-back 3-pointers by Cordell Pope helped West Alabama trim its deficit to 28-20 at the break.
UTEP scored 10 unanswered points to start the second half and eventually pushed its lead to 21 points on three separate occasions. West Alabama never got any closer than 13 again.
Moore finished with 12 points. Cedrick Lang chipped in with 11 and C.J. Cooper added 10 for the Miners.
Cordell Pope had 15 points and 7 rebounds for the Tigers.
