Head Coach Mike Holmes never expected Colorado to be a rich source of Southwestern players, but things have developed in that direction. Nick Lenhard, a senior from Falcon High School in Falcon, CO, which is a suburb of Colorado Springs, signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Spartans next season, making him the third Colorado player in three years for Southwestern.
Lenhard is a cerebral guard with a good three-point stroke. Holmes likes his energy and understanding. “Point guards are like catchers in baseball,” Holmes said. “They need to have a more heightened understanding of why things are occurring for everyone else to be successful. I saw in Nick a player who will be able to translate bench decisions and adjustments to his teammates on the floor. He is ideal for our systems.”
