Price home after stent implanted
Former Washington State and current Texas-El Paso coach Mike Price was released from a hospital Friday afternoon after doctors implanted a stent to relieve a blocked artery in his heart.
Price, 61, was resting at home after being released.
Price was having routine tests Thursday when doctors discovered a significant blockage in one of his arteries. Doctors performed an angioplasty and inserted a stent to increase blood flow in the artery.
Price is preparing for his fourth year as UTEP coach.

Matt Bouldin of Gonzaga contributed five points, three rebounds and two assists for the U.S. in 17 minutes of play against China.
“I’m definitely starting to feel the whole tension, especially playing in a different country,” Bouldin is quoted on the USA Basketball Web site before the tourney began. “Wearing USA on the jersey means so much.”
