Besides thriving on the defensive end, Reyes has come to life offensively as well. In ten January games for the Spartans, he shot 37 percent from three-point land, averaged 7.5 points, four rebounds, two assists, and 1.5 steals per game. He led Oak Lawn to an impressive 8-2 record in the month. For these accomplishments, Reyes was named as the Spartan Athlete of the Month.
 
“Nicco is our emotional leader and a team captain,” head coach Jason Rhodes said. “He leads our team in charges taken and is one of the toughest players I’ve ever coached. He also does about a million little things to help us win games that don’t show up in a box score, including often frustrating our opponent’s best offensive player with his in-your-face defense. He has been playing some excellent basketball for our team, and we clinched the first boys basketball South Suburban Conference Red championship in 39 years.”
