EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) -- Chalk up another strange turn of events for the Tim Floyd era of UTEP Basketball.

Following a team-building exercise hike up Mt. Cristo Rey, Floyd held his first press conference since losing to MTSU in the Conference USA semifinals. UTEP, a day away from starting practice, will play a tournament in Costa Rica later this month.

However, junior college transfer Roderick Williams, a 6-foot-7 sophomore forward out of Los Angeles, will not be on that trip. In fact, according to Floyd, Williams has left the program after praying to God.
