Father-son routine steals show during championship game

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- "Big Rob" and his son, Trey, gave fans at AT&T Stadium one shining moment long before the confetti dropped at the national championship game.

Rob Maiden, captain of the Dallas Mavericks dance team, Mavs ManiAACs, and his 15-year-old son performed a dance routine in the mezzanine level that had just about everyone glued to the Jumbotron late in the first half.

Rob Maiden and Trey said they worked on the synchronized dance Sunday night, getting every move memorized and perfected for college basketball's tournament finale.

Because of his local fame with the Mavericks, in-house cameras knew exactly where Rob Maiden would be, and they caught most of his entire routine during a timeout with 2:24 to play in the first half.

The huge screens inside AT&T stadium panned to other fans, but kept returning to the father-son duo and getting arguably the loudest cheers of the night.

"He gets to see me be a ham all the time," Rob Maiden said of his son. "I thought this was a chance for him to get some shine."

They ended up sharing the spotlight.

Afterward, they had fans stopping by their seats for handshakes, high-fives and photos.

"It was fun," Trey Maiden said.
