Nelson Keys Sheldon Romp

Friday night saw the Sheldon Huskies and future Blue Devil DeMarcus Nelson continue to roll over the competition in Northern California.

Perhaps the biggest bit of drama surrounding Sheldon's 95-65 victory over Florin High School was the final statistical total of future Blue Devil DeMarcus Nelson. While each of the statisticians agreed that the 6-foot-3 guard ended with 39 points, there was a big discrepancy on the final rebounding totals.

One stat sheet had Nelson finishing with 39 points, 22 rebounds, 11 assissts, and four steals, while the other sheet (kept by the home team) recorded Nelson with just 15 rebounds on the night.

Aside from his normal offensive explosion, Nelson also took some time to posterize a few Florin defenders with six rim rattling dunks on the night.

Note: Nelson is expected to be named to the McDonald's All-American game for the West All Stars when the teams are announced according to at least three members of the voting panel.
