By chance the teams of PSAL girls basketball league have not been paying attention to what Nicole Melious did on the AAU scene with the Hoopers NY over the last year, and as a freshman with Susan Wagner, they should be familiar with her play now.
Melious has return to the same phenomenal form she displayed last season when she led the PSAL in scoring with 755 points for the Falcons.
In her first two games this season, the 5-foot-9 sophomore guard dropped in 38 points and dished out three assists in a 66-51 Wagner (2-0) win over New Drop (0-1). Melious followed that up by posting 41 points, seven boards, and six assists versus host Curtis (0-2) in a 72-38 victory on Monday.
There’s no doubt that the Georgia Tech commit is special, and is only scratching the surface of her awesomeness.
The Falcons and Melious return to action against host Tottenville Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
