    HONOLULU -- John Bohannon tied his career high with 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead UTEP to an 83-76 victory over Auburn on Sunday in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic.

    The 6-foot-10 center was one of five players in double figures for the Miners (6-6). Michael Perez scored 18 points, Jacques Streeter added 12 and Gabriel McCulley and Cedrick Lang had 10 apiece.

    Kenny Gabriel scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Tigers (8-3), who also got 18 from Varez Ward and 16 from Josh Langford.

    It was the third meeting between the schools. UTEP won both previous meetings, the most recent in 1986, when the Miners upset the fifth-ranked Tigers.

    Tony Barbee coached UTEP for four seasons before taking over at Auburn last year. The Miners were 82-52 under Barbee and went to the NCAA tournament in 2010, Barbee's final season.
