ARLINGTON, Texas - UT Arlington head men's basketball coach Scott Cross has been tabbed as one of the nation's "Coaches on the verge of elite status" by espn.com's Fran Fraschilla.
Fraschilla's article was published Thursday on the site and included the Mavericks head coach as one of 11 coaches.
Said Fraschilla of Cross, "Armed with a new arena, an NIT appearance last season and an invitation to the Sun Belt Conference, the Mavericks are a hot commodity in the state of Texas and Cross is largely responsible for that."
Cross, who guided the Mavericks to a school-record 24 wins last year, will be entering his seventh season as head coach when the season begins in November.
