Eric Hicks

Eric Hicks played for UC from the 2001-2002 season to the 2005-2006 season. Much like Jason Maxiel, Hicks was another undersized Power Forward at only 6'6" that stood out at UC. His incredible athleticism led him to become a leading shot blocker in UC history, and it allowed him to absolutely throw down in the paint. Although he is one of the best offensive and defensive post players that the school has ever seen, Hicks was unable to make it in the pros because of his small size for his position, as he lacked the skill of a guard.
