Providence loses a key reserve for the second time in the last week

Just a week after losing back-up forward Greg Gantt to the transfer portal, Providence College has lost another key back-up as forward Jimmy Nichols Jr. has entered the transfer portal. The news was first reported by 247 Sports' Travis Branham. A 6'8 junior forward, Nichols averaged 6.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in 18 minutes played last season. Originally from South Carolina, Nichols recently completed his junior season.
