Melious Shatters Staten Island HS Scoring Record in Wagner Hoops’ 77-39 Win Over New Dorp


The incredible senior scoring machine, Nicole Melious, drained 44 points to help Wagner defeat New Dorp, 77-39, and surpassed Kyle McAlarney’s Staten Island high school hoops scoring record Wednesday night on the road.

The La Salle commit added 15 rebounds and five assists in the 38-point victory over the Central Cougars (7-3, 4-2).

Nicole Melious crowned new Staten Island high school scoring queen.

McAlarney, 35, drained 2,566 points at Moore Catholic High School and went on to play at Notre Dame before embarking on a nine-year professional basketball career.

New Dorp sophomore Jordanna Schrecker dropped in 17 points.

The Falcons improve their overall record to 12-1 and are 7-0 in PSAL Staten Island high school play.
