Earned All-Skyline Conference honors. A transfer from Eastern Arizona Junior College where he won All-American honors, Nicoll is likened to John Benson the Y’s high-scoring forward of last year. John was voted MVP in national J.C. tourney, will likely be the big gun on Cougar forward line this winter. A marketing major.
Unanimous all-Skyline selection in ’58, Nicoll set half a dozen records in leading Cats to second place tie. Nicoll is tireless workhorse under the boards, an unrelenting rebounder, and fine shot. Strong as an ox, John’s size and agility generally out-maneuver defenders for close-in shots. Came to BYU last year from Eastern Arizona Junior College where he won national honors in jaycee play.
