Comments: Walk passes Haskins Arena named after Hall of Fame Coach Don Haskins. In 1966, he then was the first coach to start an all black lineup in an NCAA National Basketball Championship game which they won. School was then known as Texas Western and is still the only team in Texas to ever win a national championship. Was featured in movie Glory Road. Texas Historical Markers and Walk Texas books can be stamped. Late in the year, new trolley system will be ready so you can ride it from UTEP to downtown and back.
