Lady Maverick Basketball

For the first time at UT Arlington, Lady Maverick Basketball has started their season off 5-0 for the second consecutive year.  Lady Mavericks shot over forty percent from the field for the second game in a row after Crystal Allen’s buzzer-beater three against SMU.  Lady Mavericks topped Fresno State 67-54 before their next four out of five games on the road against power 5 conference schools.  Coach Krista Gerlich says that protecting home court is a strategy that the Lady Mavs are using to protect their undefeated record.  The Lady Mavs are also 14-3 at home going back to last season.
