For the past 4 years, Nichols has been one of the steadiest point guards in Mountaineer history. Always stingy with the ball (as exampled by his 28 minute, 0 turnover performance last night), Nichols has also become a reliable scorer for the Mountaineers. In my mind, he will be forever remembered for two plays: his block against Wake Forest and the last-gasp, game-winning shot against Mississippi State in last year's NIT.
So, regardless of what happens over the next few weeks, WBGV salutes Darris Nichols. Thanks for the memories, you'll be missed.
