To get there the Huskies found themselves in a battle with Newark in front of the sold-out crowd at Folsom High School.
After holding a slight lead for most of the game, the Huskies quickly found themselves on the wrong end of a fall down prayer from three that fell for Newark to tie that game at 44 heading to the fourth quarter.
At that point it was up to Nelson to put his team on his back. So the state's all-time leading scorer quickly added a pair of big baskets, and three big blocks inside against the Newark post players to finish with 24 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, and three blocks.
