EL PASO, Texas -- John Bohannon scored 17 points, Chris Washburn added 14 off the bench and UTEP came alive in the second half en route to a 69-49 victory over Oral Roberts on Friday in both teams' season opener.

Bohannon was 8 of 14 from the field, while Washburn was 6 of 7 for the Miners, who improved to 31-4 in openers at the Haskins Center.
