Team preview: Texas-Arlington
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
With its top three scorers back off last season's 16-13 squad that posted a surprising third-place finish in the Southland, Texas-Arlington could be the early favorite in the conference race.
"I think that would be overrating us," said 12th-year Mavericks coach Eddie McCarter. "I don't see us being any better than Southwest Texas [now Texas State] and we lost as many players as Stephen F. Austin."
