Nicholoson is a high efficiency scorer who increased his points per game average by four points for the second straight year. If he can improve like that again, he'll be among the top scorers in the country as a senior. He is also a consistent rebounder and a good shot blocker.
Interestingly, Nicholson has seen his blocked shot average decrease each year at St. Bonaventure. He also saw his turnover rate balloon to 3.2 as a junior, which is unacceptable from a forward. Nicholson also needs to add strength and develop his offensive game. At this point, he is a poor man's Tyrus Thomas at the NBA level.
