UT Arlington fans packed the MAC for the late night event where T-shirts, foam fingers, posters and food was given to all in attendance.

Head coaches Scott Cross, Samantha Morrow and Movin' Mavs coach Doug Garner were introduced as well as their teams.

Before the women's team heads off on a four game road trip, fans will get a chance to see them in action Nov. 6 at Texas Hall. The Mavs face East Central at 6 p.m. in an exhibition contest.
