Texas–Arlington Mavericks men's basketball

The UT Arlington Mavericks men's basketball team is an NCAA Division I college basketball team competing in the Sun Belt Conference. Home games are played at College Park Center, located on University of Texas at Arlington's campus in Arlington. The team appeared in the 2008 NCAA tournament, losing against the #1 seed Memphis in the first round, although Memphis was later forced to vacate the win due to infractions committed by the program.

Team history

The Mavericks are one of the founding teams of the Southland Conference, which began with five institutions on March 15, 1963.[1] Although only 15 of 54 seasons have resulted in an overall winning record, 5 of the past 6 seasons have winning records. The team won an outright regular season championship in 2012, along with a tie for the 2004 regular season champion and a 2008 conference tournament championship that led to their first NCAA Tournament appearance.[2]

Facilities

Until February 2012, the Mavericks played at Texas Hall, which is a 3,300 seat theater on the campus. The teams play on the stage, and fans can watch the game from either the theater seats or the bleacher section.

A new arena called the College Park Center with a seating capacity of 7,000 hosted the final four regular season home games for the team in 2012.[3][4] The facility is located on the eastern side of the campus along with new housing, parking, and retail developments.
