Hancock, MI – Finlandia University Men’s Basketball coach Mike O’Donnell has announced that Gwinn’s Justin Nyquist has committed to continue his education and basketball career at Finlandia University starting in the 2014-2015 season. “In Justin we are getting a very versatile small forward,” said Coach Mike O’Donnell.

Nyquist is a 6’4” forward from Gwinn where he averaged 15.8 points per game and 8.4 rebounds per game in his senior season for the Modeltowners.  In his senior season he was also named to the 2014 Mid Peninsula All-Conference 1st Team and the 2014 All-UP 2nd Team Class ABC.

“At 6’4”, Justin will be able to guard the post when need be, but at the same time he can step out and handle and shoot the ball from the perimeter,” O’Donnell said. “I’ve watched him develop as a 3 year varsity player for Coach Sinnaeve at Gwinn, and look forward to him joining our program at Finlandia.
