The UTPB men;s basketball team is 6-2 in Heartland Conference play which is tied for first. This is a group of very athletic and talented players. They have been playing great offense all year and now have started to play team defense and have a real shot at winning the conference.
The Lady Falcons are 4-3 in conference play, but just a game out of first with Lubbock Christian not eligible to make the postseason. UTPB has developed a solid team basketball concept, but can always rely on Valerie Barriga for a clutch play.
