Through the 2017 of season, the UTA Mavs’s men’s basketball team scored former Virginia Tech center Johnny Hamilton. Johnny hurt his thumb in his senior year season at Virginia Tech. Since he was injured and didn’t play, he still had one year of eligibility left through the NCAA. So, when Johnny decided to go to grad school at UT Arlington, the team picked him up for his final season, replacing their center Jorge Bilbao who graduated last year. I caught up with the center and head coach Scott Cross to see how the change is going for Johnny and his new teammates.
