Much is said about the "toughness" of the student-athletes in UTA men's basketball program. But, there is little said about the coaches and staff that also embody the program's popular "Take The Stairs" philosophy.
In yesterday's first session of "Boot Camp," head coach Scott Cross and assistant coach Kenneth Mangrum teamed together to complete the same drill the players were conducting - a series of push-ups, pull-ups and jumps. Today, UTA's Voice of the Mavs Josh Sours followed a group of players throughout the entire mile-long exercise that winded throughout 12,000-seat Maverick Stadium - all in an effort to produce this great time-lapse piece. Afterward, while the players rested after their session, Sours remained in action filming interviews and other B-roll for use in his piece for UTAMavs.com.
