The 17-year-old is finishing her high school career at Winston Knoll Collegiate in Regina and averaged more than 25 points a game in 2014-15 season at the shooting guard position.
“Nicole brings a wealth of experience and a highly competitive attitude, which we need,” said Bisons head coach Michele Hynes.

The 5’10” shooting guard has an already impressive playing career resume as she been part of Team Saskatchewan basketball teams plus captain of high school basketball team from 2012-15.
