Summary:
Nolan Hickman is an agile, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is a gifted ball handler that can get to anywhere he wants on the court, and he has a wealth of ball-handling moves that he can use to score off the dribble.  He also can ably run the point, but he will need to improve his defensive skills.  He didn’t play nearly as much as anticipated, but he is a skilled player that could be a prospect to watch for the 2023 draft.
