In 2019, Bieniemy was a full-time starter averaging 5.2 points, 4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game, and averaged over 30 minutes on the floor. Bieniemy made 47 starts in two seasons as a Sooner, and led OU in assists and steals as a freshman.
Bieniemy was expected to make a big leap his sophomore year after big performances in key games down the stretch as a freshman, scoring 22 points against West Virginia, and achieving a career-high eight assists against Texas.
UTEP finished 17-15 last season and was 8-10 Conference USA play.
