TEAM OF THE WEEK | Upsetting No. 12 Saint Mary's par for UT Arlington's course

So how do you follow an historic win at Texas? If you are UT Arlington, you go back on the road and win for the first time against No. 12 Saint Mary’s in Moraga, Calif., 65-51.

Erick Neal (13 points and 8 assists) and Kevin Hervey (15 points) are one of the best 1-2 punches in the country. The Mavs are a legit at-large bid contender if they can finish their non-conference slate unscathed.

I told you back in the summer about these magical Mavs. Remember, I was the one who gave you fair warning about Butler the summer of 2009 before the bandwagon even started.
