Shorthorn Shots of the Week 11/27

This week was cut short because of Thanksgiving and sports dominated this week. Besides the portrait of "Mr. Arlington" himself, Allan Saxe, I got a lot of much needed sports action. Last weekend I covered the Southland Conference volleyball tournament in Huntsville. I continued my tournament multimedia packages with stills and video recaps of each game. Basketball season is also in full swing and it has definitely been interesting seeing how the new players are starting off the season. I was skeptical about how well we would do this season with such a young team but so far it's looking pretty good.
Political science professor Allan Saxe is lighting up Arlington with more than just his smile this holiday season with financial help to the North Arlington community of Interlochen for off-duty police officers to direct traffic for their neighborhood lights tradition. Saxe said that when he lived near Interlochen more than 20 years ago, he would decorate his home in conjunction with their Christmas light display where over 200 residents decorate their homes to show off to the public.

Junior forward LaMarcus Reed shoots over defenders during the second half of the Mavericks’ 88-71 victory over Hardin-Simmons on Monday at Texas Hall. The Mavericks’ next game will be against St. Edward’s at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at Texas Hall. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Freshman guard Bryant Smith flies towards the basket for a layup during the Mavericks’ 88-71 win over Hardin-Simmons on Monday at Texas Hall. Smith has quickly become the Mavericks’ sixth man by being able to come off the bench and score by attacking the rim. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Senior outside hitter Bianca Sauls spikes the ball between Sugar Bear blockers during the Mavericks’ 3-0 loss to Central Arkansas in the second round of the Southland Conference Tournament at Johnson Coliseum in Huntsville. Sauls contributed eight kills and six digs in the final game of her senior season. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
