GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - John Bohannon scored 12 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as Texas-El Paso pulled away from East Carolina in a 58-47 win Thursday night.

UTEP (17-6, 7-1 Conference USA) took the lead on a 12-2 run sparked by a C.J. Cooper 3-pointer to close out the first half with a 27-18 advantage. The conference leading Miners never trailed again after that.

Cooper ended the game with 15 points and Julian Washburn had 14 for UTEP, which shot 52 percent from the field to win its third straight conference road game for the first time since the 1993-94 season. Cedrick Lang had 10 rebounds.

East Carolina (12-11, 1-7) was led by Akeem Richmond, who scored 20 points, including six 3-pointers to break his own school record for most 3s in a season with 106. Paris Roberts-Campbell added 12 points in the loss.
