Maverick men clinch regular season title, top seed for Sun Belt championship tournament

Monday night's 82-67 win over Troy helped the men's basketball team clinch at least a share of the Sun Belt Conference regular-season title.

The Mavs, who are 23-6 overall and 13-3 in conference, have two road games remaining in the regular season, at ULM on Thursday, March 2, in Monroe, La., and at Louisiana on Saturday, March 4, in Lafayette, La.

Monday's win makes UTA the top seed in the annual Sun Belt Conference Men's Basketball Championship Tournament, scheduled for Wednesday-Sunday, March 8-12, in New Orleans. UTA would receive a first round bye and would begin tournament play on Friday, March 10. Tickets for the SBC tournament games are available at

The Mavericks qualify for a postseason berth in the National Invitational Tournament as the league's regular season champion in the event UTA does not earn a spot in the NCAA Championships.

Head coach Scott Cross earned his 200th career victory Monday, making him the winningest coach in program history. LEARN MORE.
