Drew Nicholas Signs with Turkish Team

Drew Nicholas (1999-2003) signed a 2-year deal last month with Euroleague team Efes Pilsen in Istanbul, Turkey.

Nicholas (1.93 m) made his presence felt almost immediately in his debut Euroleague campaign, finishing as the regular season's scoring champ with an average of 18.6 points a game, almost 2 points clear of any other player. In the Top 16 matches, Nicholas dropped his scoring rate slightly to 18 points, third-best in that round.

Nicholas and Benetton failed to reach the Quarterfinal Playoffs in the Euroleague, but found their game to win the Italian League title later in the spring.
