Erie Times-News Breakout Boys Basketball Player of the Week: Andrew Niland, Fairview

Andrew Niland

Fairview sophomore Andy Niland has the Tigers in line for another District 10 Class AA playoff spot this winter.

A sharpshooter and leader on the floor, Niland, who started as a freshman, put together a big performance against rival Mercyhurst Prep last week, hitting six 3-pointers on his way to 22 points in the 48-39 win.

He is one of the top scoring sophomores in District 10 at 14.5 points per game and is a big reason why Fairview fans can count on the Tigers remaining a D-10 contender over the next few years.
