"Erick has really done an awesome job running our basketball team," UT Arlington coach Scott Cross said. "He has made it his No. 1 priority to make his teammates better and that is what we want out of our point guard. Our assist numbers have been astronomical this year and Erick is big reason why we are having so many assists. I am very happy that the rest of the coaches in the league recognized and appreciated his pass-first mentality."
