BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – TSU men’s basketball graduate student Joirdon Karl Nicholas was named to the 2022-23 All-SWAC Second Team on the eve of the 2023 SWAC Tournament.
The Houston native had a solid final regular season at TSU as he leads the SWAC with nine double-doubles. Named the Preseason All-SWAC Defensive Player of the Year, Nicholas lived up to the hype as he was the SWAC’s leading rebounder (9.2) while ranking fifth in blocked shots (1.1). He scored a season-high of 28 points against Huston-Tillotson while also scoring 21 points with SWAC-high 18 rebounds against North Carolina A&T State. Nicholas had 10 games with double-digit rebounds, six games with two-plus blocks while also surpassing the 1,000-point career mark this season.
