Weaknesses: Offensively, he is still very raw Not yet comfortable with the ball in his hands outside of the low post Lacks a midrange game at this point He has bad positioning in the offensive paint when looking for the ball, this really hurts his chances of getting good quality entry passes to work on his low post moves Really needs to add some bulk in order to bang with the big boys and make his low post game more effective, and he is working on it
Notes: Has really played himself into more playing time this year because of his desire on defense and the inability for the two upperclassmen ahead of him to perform effectively. Even Martelli (SJU coach) admits that they don’t yet run a lot of plays for him at this point, since they are still stuck in a dribble drive, penetrate and kick out for the three ball type of offense. This will change next year. Look for Nivins to be the second option on the team next year and to have numbers like 15, 12 and three blocks per game.
