Hui had a season-high 25 digs against Robert Morris College on Feb. 15.

"This is a great honor for Ding and one that he deserves," said Head Men's Volleyball Coach Brett Holt. "Ding helped lead the team on the court to one of its most successful seasons in program history and everyone within the program is happy he received this honor."
