Carrick Felix was the heart and soul of this team this past year. After two seasons on a struggling squad, Felix came into his own as a senior.
In two seasons at Arizona State, Felix averaged 7.5 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. He shot 41 percent from the field and 28 percent from three-point territory. He also had zero career double-doubles; last season, he recorded three in a one-week span.
After the 2012-13 regular season, he led the Pac-12 with 12 double-doubles, nine of them in-conference. His 14.2 points and 8.2 rebounds per game were second best in the Pac-12 behind Stanford’s Dwight Powell with 15.6 points and 8.8 boards.
Felix finished the season in the top 15 of six categories in the Pac-12, including No. 6 in steals and No. 7 in rebounds. His field-goal percentage jumped to 51 percent, and his three-point shooting improved to 36 percent.
He started all 31 games and led the Devils in field-goal percentage, three-point percentage, rebounds and steals. His 14.2 points and 34 blocks were second best on the team as well. He scored in double digits in 25 games last season and tallied 20 or more in seven games, including 22 in his final regular-season game against rival Arizona.
The numbers are astounding, and Felix was named to the second-team All-Pac-12 as well as the exclusive Pac-12 All-Defense team with teammate Jordan Bachynski.
