Nelson Scores 21 In Win
The loss to Amityville in the opening round of the Slam Dunk to the Beach was a painful one for Courtney Nelson and Bloomfield Tech. "We were focused, but we got off to a slow start," Nelson said. "I think that loss helped us today."
Bloomfield took down Friends Central and Nelson was a guiding light in the win. He exhibited more leadership than he had the day before and really used his own offensive fortunes to fuel his teammates. Da'Shawn Wright stroked open jumpers because Nelson was able to attack the basket.
On Friday, Nelson was the dictator of the pace of the game and that's how he envisions it all the time. "I felt we let Amityville control the tempo too much. Today, we did a great job on [Mustafa] Shakur. He'll get his 25-30 but you have to hold everyone else down."
Villanova and Seton Hall, according to Nelson, have offered. But Nelson indicated that he in no way felt pressured to reach a decision too soon.
