Mavs head coach Steve Tucker has heart

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

The Shreveport-Bossier Mavericks are on quite the roll with an ABA record 40 straight regular season wins.  If the streak wasn't impressive enough, the Mavs have played most of this season without their head coach Steve Tucker.

It was back in November with his team preparing to open their season in their new home that Maverick head coach Steve Tucker made a surprise visit to his squad just days after surviving the scare of his life.  After getting clearance from his doctors, Coach T is now back on the sidelines and he is picking up right where he left off.

While having a two time national champion on the sidelines is good for any team.  Some of the Mavs told me the thing they missed most about their coach was his energy.  The Mavs will be at home again January 18th to take on the Mobile Bay Tornadoes at BPCC.
