El Paso, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - John Bohannon scored 17 points and ripped down 15 rebounds for the Texas-El Paso Miners, who defeated the Denver Pioneers, 60-54, in double overtime at the Don Haskins Center as part of the Sun Bowl Invitational.

C.J. Cooper added 15 points for UTEP (10-5), which has won five straight. Cedrick Lang finished with 10 points and eight rebounds off the bench and Vince Hunter tallied 10 boards.

A low-scoring first half ended with the Miners leading, 20-14. They knocked down only 23.8 percent of their field goal attempts, but hit 9-of-14 from the free-throw line and held the Pioneers to just 21.4 percent shooting.

Both teams improved in the second half, with UTEP shooting 38.1 percent and Denver at 37.5 percent. A 3-pointer from Love and a pair of free-throws from Griffin with 1:20 to play pushed Denver to a 46-44 lead but Cooper got two free-throws of his own in the final minute to force overtime.

The Miners were trailing, 54-51 with 3:14 to play in the second overtime but they then ripped off a 9-0 run to close out the game and the victory.
