Anyone who has been to a Niobrara-Verdigre basketball game in the last three years, knows who Ricky Bickerstaff is.
Joining the Cougars as a sophomore, Bickerstaff’s career was more than impressive. He was the first Cougar to score and surpass the 1,000 point score mark and did it in a three year period.
Bickerstaff rarely played a game where he didn’t score double digits. Being the well rounded player he is, he also had impressive stats in rebounds, assists, steals and blocks and made the Niobrara Valley Conference first-team selection three times.
Bickerstaff will continue his basketball career as a Mount Marty College Lancer. He signed his letter of intent on Tuesday, May 1.
