Roster Years

BYU Hall of Fame

Freshman Year 1951-1952

  • Averaged 21 games and averaged 6.6 points and 5.0 rebounds
Sophmore Year 1952-1953

Judged by many critics as the Skyline’s top frosh of last year, Mateljan has the court form of a veteran. Although he had a late start, Nick handled 105 rebounds and averaged 6.6 points per game. His height and crisp ball handling are a definite asset to Wattsmen. Mateljan’s hook shots and tailing shots kept the Cougars in the running in tight spots last year. A Californian, Nick looms as the most promising player in the loop.
