Erika Ruiz enters her second season as video coordinator for USC women's basketball, which includes supervising video breakdown, planning the "Cynthia Cooper Camps", and creating multimedia presentations.
Ruiz began her college basketball career at St. Mary's College, where she earned a BS in Business Administration. She transferred to Cal State Los Angeles, where she completed her remaining two years of eligibility and earned a BS in Kinesiology: Community Leadership. Aside from sports, Ruiz says her biggest accomplishment thus far is creating and running her own camp for a nonprofit organization that built a bridge between basketball and academics in unprivileged communities.
Ruiz is currently pursuing an M.C.M. in Communication Management at USC and plans to be a sports agent.
