Our boys POTW this week is Caleb Nelson of the Granville Golden Horde. Nelson had a fantastic performance last week in a pair of wins. Against Corinth on Tuesday Nelson exploded for 33 points. Corinth only scored 31 as a team. At one point in the second half Nelson scored 16 points in a row.
Against Hadley-Luzerne Nelson scored a game-high 24 points to lead the Golden Horde to a 75-62 victory. IN both games Nelson scored in a variety of ways. Beyond the arc, in transition, mid-range, in the paint and from the stripe. It was an absolute clinic on scoring the basketball.
This week's POTW on the girls side is Hartford Tanagers guard Gabbie McFarren. McFarren has helped lead the Tanagers to an unbeaten ADK slate thus far. Last week McFarren scored a career high 29 points in a win over Salem. McFarren connected on 12 free throws in the game.
In a win over Warrensburg McFarren scored 16 points, eight of which came from the charity stripe. McFarren is just 54 points away from the 1,000 career point mark.
Way to Gabrielle!
