HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall has added Serbian point guard Aleksa Nikolic to its men’s basketball roster.
Marshall coach Dan D’Antoni announced the addition of the 6-foot-5 Nikolic on Thursday.
A native of Pancevo, Serbia, Nikolic averaged more than 20 points, six rebounds and eight assists for a junior club team.
D’Antoni says Nikolic had a nearly 3-inch growth spurt in just over a year and has a nearly 7-foot wingspan.
Nikolic joins in-state guard Calvin Burks of Hedgesville High School in D’Antoni’s first recruiting class at Marshall.
