#FOLLOWING a standout senior season, Nicholas Strachan received his first postseason accolades.

#The 6’6” wing was named to the 2019-20 Boys Basketball All-State Class 2A Second team as selected by SourceHoops.com and the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches.

#In his lone season with the St John Paull II Panthers in Tallahassee, Florida, Strachan helped lead the team to a District Championship to the FHSAA 2A quarter-finals.

#He led the team in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 17.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game respectively.

#He recorded seven double doubles on the season, highlighted by a 32 points and 14 rebounds against Blake and 32 points with 16 rebounds against Lighthouse Christian.

#In the season finale, Strachan scored a game high 22 points and added 12 rebounds but his No.2 seeded Panthers saw their season come to an end in an upset loss to the Florida A and M University Developmental Research School Rattlers, 79-61.

#St John Paul II finished the season at 15-11. In his final home game, Strachan scored 15 points on senior night in a 53-51 win over McKlay.

#In an active prep career, the Panthers was Strachan’s fourth school in four years since his move to the United States.

#He began at Godby, then transferred to Chiles and then to Orlando Christian Prep last year, before his final stop with the Panthers.

#In the 2019 season, he was on the losing side of the 3A championship game with OCP when they lost in the season finale against the Panthers.

#As a freshman playing on the varsity squad at Godby, Strachan immediately drew the attention of coaches and recruits for his performance at the Leonard Hamilton Basketball Camp.

#Strachan played locally at Kingsway Academy before making the transition to the United States.

#He is the son of Stingers Youth Basketball association director Stephen Strachan and the brother of former Middle Tennessee State University guard Stephen Strachan J
