The UTA men’s basketball team hosted their Meet the Mavericks event at Grease Monkey’s Burger Shop and Social Club in Downtown Arlington. This was their first public event since they lost in the NIT quarterfinal against Bakersfield. Players and coaches took the time to greet fans, sign autographs, and take photos. Kevin Hervey was named an All-American honorable mention by the Associated Press and Coach Scott Cross was nominated for the Skip Prosser award for the second year in a row. The only player not in attendance was Drew Charles due to a prior commitment.
