ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – Andrew Nicholson and Xavier's Tu Holloway have been named Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Players of the Week, the conference office announced on Monday.
Nicholson recorded 44 points on 74 percent shooting from the floor (14-of-19) to lead all scorers and grabbed 12 rebounds for his fifth straight double-double in St. Bonaventure's 112-107, quadruple overtime win over Ohio last Saturday. The game was the longest in St. Bonaventure history and Nicholson's 44 points are the eighth highest single-game total in school annals. The junior forward played all 60 minutes and netted 15 of his points in the combined extra periods. Nicholson finished the game tallying career-highs in assists (5) and free throws made (16). The Mississauga, Ontario, Canada native registered a blocked shot in the win and became just the third player at SBU to block at least 150 career shots.
