ON POINT’S BRAND NEW SERIES “THE FOLLOW THROUGH” Episode One features Canadian-born, Orlando Magic forward Andrew Nicholson as #TeamOnPoint gets up close and personal with the Mississauga native who stayed in Canada and attended Father Goetz Secondary School.
We follow Andrew as he works out with Dr. Thomas Lam of FITS Toronto and then at his 44 Hoops Camp held at Father Goetz where he gives back to the community and youth in a big way!
The graduate of St. Bonaventure University not only played 4 years of NCAA basketball but also graduated with a Physics degree! An amazing accomplishment to say the least.
Nicholson was a member of the Canada Basketball team that captured a Silver medal at the Pan Am Games in Toronto earlier this summer.
Nicholson suited up for Canada at the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship in Mexico City, Mexico where Canada won a Bronze medal but failed to qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics. They will attempt to qualify in one of three Olympic Qualifying Tournaments in July of next year.
Next up for Nicholson is Orlando Magic training camp where he’ll enter his 4th season under new Magic Head Coach Scott Skiles.
All the best to Andrew from #TeamOnPoint. Enjoy!
