Kingston’s Matthew Nelson Helps Cougars To First District Title Then Makes Dream Team

(Cadet) An historic season for the Kingston boys basketball team ended up with one of its stars on the Winter Dream Team. Senior Matthew Nelson averaged 14.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and over 4 blocks per game for the Cougars in a season that saw them win their first ever district title.

The six-foot-six Nelson eneded his career as the school’s all-time leader in blocks and rebounds but he was proud of the way his jump shot developed.

Nelson totaled 1,482 points for Kingston, the most ever for a boys basketball player, but the all-time scoring record belongs to his sister and fellow Dream-Teamer, Madison. Though Matthew says he gets the last laugh in one-on-one.

Nelson was happy to announce that he and his sister will bring their competitive relationship to Fontbonne University in St. Louis where they’ll both play basketball.

Nelson is a two-time district player of the year. Kingston finished the season with a record of 19-8.
