Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 327 Division I teams.

Although UTEP has been hanging out in the same neighborhood as WAC foe San Jose State, the Miners plan on moving up soon in the league standings.

Once a proud program, one that has won seven WAC championships and a national title in 1966, UTEP fell nearly 240 spots in the RPI over the last two seasons.
