I saw on Nick’s Instagram he and his wife Lera (Star tennis player for Detroit from Belarus) had a baby boy June 15th. Big congratulations to Nick and his new family! Always one of my all time favorite players for the Titans. Has been proud Titan playing ball around the world. Last year in China teaming up with Jimmer Fredette taking the Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese CBA to the playoffs! Not bad for a kid who barely played high school ball and went to Jackson community here in Michigan 2 or 3 years after doing odd jobs Out of high school. Keep it up Nick!

Nick took off a couple months with new baby I believe. Read he recently went back to China. Replaced NBA player Al Jefferson. He now playing for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers. Located in Northwest China, I guess another high profile team in the Chinese basketball association. Good luck Nick. From Jackson Community college to China!
Don't follow jucos much anymore, but you guys turning the corner. Good coach you got. Best of luck to you all and the team!

I saw Nick returned from China, expect he wanted to go to a place his new son could go. He signed in January to the Puerto Rican BSN. He currently leading the league with 27 pts a game shooting lights out. Set an import record of 44 points (in 30 minutes) for his team Leones de Ponce. Team has been around 70 years. In liga basket games he played again like he did in China against Eli Holman. This time Eli's team won by 3. Nick had team high of 29. Eli not playing now for some reason?

Nick been making real good money in his career. The Korean Basketball League like China allows only 2 foreign players on each team. Korea pays very well. Still think that group of Eli, Nick, Ray, Doug, Bruinsma, Chase, Calliste, Juan Howard era was one of most talented groups Detroit ever had.

I agree that Ray was a great recruiter but a poor coach. I do believe with the talent on that squad they should have been able to make the tournament more often and gone deeper. I think coaching his son had a detrimental effect on the success of the team. My personal opinion only.
Minnerath continues to play well in the Korean Basketball League (KBL). Nick is currently 2nd in league averaging 20.7 points in 42 games.

I want to add that Ray was a great representation of the University. Extremely well spoken, knowledgeable, articulate, and a very nice man. I’m happy he having continued success!
