Wagner Picks Off Longwood Prep Behind 53 Points from Nicole Melious


Nicole Melious drained an incredible double-double of 53 points and 16 rebounds in Wagner girls’ basketball’s 99-67 non-league victory over the Bronx’s Longwood Prep (9-10) on Saturday afternoon at home.

The 5-foot-9 junior guard, who also suits up the AAU NY Hoopers, also dished out nine helpers. Lady Falcon sophomore Samantha Harrell played well, scoring 11 points.

For the 2021-2022, Melious now has dropped in 939 points, tops in the PSAL, raising her high school career total to 1896 points, with one regular season tilt left to play against Curtis on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. It was Melious’ sixth 50-plus tilt of the campaign.

Wagner improved to 20-3 overall, with a PSAL Staten Island league record of 13-0.
