The Algoma University Thunderbirds Men's Basketball Team of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, has announced that Nikola Zorcic has joined the Algoma Thunderbirds men's basketball team for the 2015-16 season, their third year of play in the OUA and CIS.

Zorcic is a 5'11", 165 pound point guard from Winnipeg, Manitoba. With his high school squad, the Oak Park Raiders, Zorcic averaged 22 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists. His team captured both the national and provincial title. He was a member of the Manitoba U17 Provincial Team.

He will be studying Business Administration at Algoma U. He is currently maintaining honour roll status with his high school and has been offered an academic entrance scholarship from Algoma U.

"One of the biggest reasons I chose Algoma is because of the interest Coach Cory had," said Zorcic. "The program was very appealing and I felt like the transition from high school to Algoma University would have been the easier path. I also liked the city and players on the team when I went on the visit."
