UT Arlington’s wheelchair basketball team, the Movin’ Mavs, held a 30-minute intra-squad scrimmage before the Final Four teams took the floor for their open practice sessions Friday at AT&T Stadium. UTA player Juan Soto said he and his teammates were excited to perform in the venue, especially rolling across the Final Four logo at midcourt.
“It was an honor to play where so many of these guys who are going to be NBA superstars in the future get to play,” Soto said.
The Movin’ Mavs are seven-time national champions in the intercollegiate division of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association. They finished as the national runner-up this season.
