Nelson Blickman has been around for a while for Radnor and unfortunately for the three-year starter, he hasn’t seen a ton of winning.
When he first broke into the Raiders’ lineup as a sophomore, Blickman saw his team flounder on the way to a three-win season. A year later, he emerged as Radnor’s go-to guy, but the Raiders were only able to up that win total by two victories.
Coming into his final season, though, Blickman knew things would be different. Chris Monahan’s team brought back an incredible 98.4 percent of its scoring from a year ago and with nine seniors to count upon, there was every reason for heightened optimism at Radnor.
The Raiders have some work to do to claw their way back in the Central League, but as they showed in Saturday night’s 73-60 win over New Media Technology Charter in the championship game of the Walt Katuzny Tournament, they’re not a team that’s easy to handle.
