At Glaxo the 6-foot-4 guard was playing off the ball which limited his touches and impact. Since returning home the Huskies have moved him to the point guard slot, allowing the offense to build around the future Blue Devil. The results have spoken for themselves.
Fremont saw Nelson go for 40 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, and five steals; Elk Grove surrendered 29 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists; Valley also couldn't stop him to the tune of 36 points, eight rebounds, and six assists.
In the Valley game, Nelson started slow and drew the wrath of the opposing fans who began to chant "over-rated" at the future Devil. At that point Nelson went off, scoring 20 second half points including a monster jam that silenced the crowd as Sheldon held on for the 73-67 win.
