No. 2 West Iron County rolls past Houghton

1/19/2019 | Game Recap | By Jason Sutherland

E mily Nelson has come a long way from when she was a young player, both with her skill set and her mentality. The 6-foot-1 junior commands a lot of attention, presumably just as much as she always has, but the difference between her game in the past and her current style of play comes down to one word: patience.

This slower, thoughtful approach was on full display throughout the West Iron County Wykons’ 62-45 victory over Houghton on Friday night, as Nelson showed off a well-balanced game that included 21 points to go along with a smooth passing game, often finding her open teammates in seams that were created by the double-teams coming her way.
