Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game and regular season progress of talented senior guard prospect Shelton Mickell of Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York ...

Shelton Mickell, a 6-foot-2, 160-pound shooting guard from Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York, is a guard that has been heavily counted on this season to produce points for head coach Ron Naclerio's boy's basketball program.

"He does an outstanding job for us, especially shooting the basketball," said Naclerio. "He can score points from anywhere on the court."

Mickell has averaged 14.6 points per game while handing out four assists per contest for the Judges. "He shoots it about 37 percent from beyond the three point line," said Naclerio, who also added his student/athlete already has the core and SAT score to get into college.

"St. Francis of Pennsylvania, Manhattan, Charleston, Creighton have been some of the schools that have shown interest in him," said Naclerio.

Naclerio added: "He's going to fill into his body, and when he does, he'll be even a better offensive player. He also has point guard ability so he will be a very good college basketball player."
