ARLINGTON, Texas - It's no secret that UTA women's basketball coach Krista Gerlich is competitive, from the sidelines, to her playing time on the court, she is out there to win. The apple didn't fall far from the tree with her daughter, Bryn. 

This week CBS11 met with coach Gerlich and Bryn, who has committed to play at Oklahoma State about their dynamic of what it means to be a parent in coaching.

"With Colleyville Heritage cruising into the girls' state basketball playoffs, Bryn Gerlich is poised to finish her high school career in style.

She has already signed to play college ball next season at Oklahoma State.

When she looks in the stands, she instantly realizes where her inspiration comes from. Bryn's mother, Krista Gerlich, was a star player on the women's basketball team that won the national title in 1993 at Texas Tech.

"I couldn't do any of this without my mom," said Bryn. "Her love of the game is why I love the game."

Krista says she's happy to see her daughter following her own path. That path includes heading to Stilwater, Oklahoma, instead of Lubbock, Texas, like her mother and her father Brian, who was a linebacker for the Red Raiders."

For the last couple of years, UT Arlington communications students have earned real-world news reporting experience by covering various preseason media days for Maverick sports.  Beginning with the 2016 men and women's basketball preseason media and photo day, students in classes and programs led by professors Lance Liguez, Jennifer Little and Brad Loper have observed press conferences, conducted interviews, taken photographs and gathered video and social media content.  The experience provides a unique opportunity for the students to see firsthand how press events work and how content is gathered by news organizations.

With UT Arlington's baseball and softball seasons just days away, Maverick head coaches Darin Thomas and Peejay Brun served as the centerpieces of Wednesday night's Maverick Hour radio show presented by Baylor Orthopedic & Spine Hospital at Arlington.  Hosted by voice of the Mavericks Josh Sours, the show took place at Grease Monkey in Downtown Arlington and was broadcast live on KEXB 620 AM and online via TuneIn.

Attending UTA sporting events in College Park Center can be a high energy, fun experience - thanks in large part to Ken Vincent (aka "DJ Diamond K"), a live DJ who keeps the event rockin' regardless of what is taking place on the floor.  Check out this great feature produced by athletics student video intern Andrea Ayers.

This week's Maverick Hour featured live interviews with UTA women's basketball coach Krista Gerlich and men's coach Scott Cross.  Hosted by Voice of the Mavs Josh Sours, the one-hour show took place at Grease Monkey in Downtown Arlington and is presented by Baylor Orthopedia & Spine Hospital at Arlington.
