#Dunkage: Darius Nelson

30 Oct

UTEP freshman Darius Nelson gets us started in #dunkage this year during a Miner scrimmage. The Sacramento native went the length of the court to ruin a teammates night. Nelson scored 19 points in his team’s win in front of 3,000 people.

Nelson is one of eight freshmen for Tim Floyd this year and one of 10 newcomers. The Miners are going through an identity search during the preseason. With eight players scoring in double figures between the two teams in the scrimmage, Floyd will have plenty to sort through as UTEP tries to figure out who they are exactly.

Because of opportunity, Nelson could be one of the top freshmen sleepers in the nation. He’s slimmed up his body, improved his skill set (which was already pretty strong) and confidence will certainly come as the season progresses. – Justin Young
