    GARLAND, Texas -- Julian Washburn had 20 points and eight rebounds as UTEP closed out the regular season with a 76-63 victory over SMU on Saturday.

    The Miners (17-13, 10-6 Conference USA), who shot 59 percent from the field and were 9 of 19 beyond the arc, also got 13 points from C.J. Cooper, 12 from Cedrick Lang and 11 from McKenzie Moore. Jacques Streeter added 10 assists.

    Cannen Cunningham scored 15 points, Ryan Manuel had 14 and Nick Russell 10 for SMU (15-16, 5-11).

    The game was played at Curtis Culwell Center due to a $47 million renovation project that has begun at Moody Coliseum.

    UTEP will carry the No. 3 seed and gets a bye in the first round of the Conference USA tournament in Tulsa, Okla. The Miners will face the winner of No. 6 Houston and No. 11 Rice on Thursday. SMU is seeded 10th and will face No. 7 Alabama-Birmingham on Wednesday.
