Before he played D1 ball at William & Mary, professionally and Europe and joined the Spurs coaching staff, Sean Sheldon was a Class C sophomore in Northern Michigan having a breakout game.

Though certainly not as spectacular as Suttons Bay junior Dwaun Anderson, 6-8 Traverse City St. Francis sophomore Sean Sheldon may have actually been better in Suttons Bay’s 53-51 Class C district final win Friday in Traverse City.
Anderson, an athletic 6-4 wing, scored 18 points, many of them tough pullups over 6-5 St. Francis senior Ian Sheldon and including the coast-to-coast game-winner with 10 seconds to play, as well as a Shannon Brown-esque dunk down the lane. Sean Sheldon also scored 18, but did it on 9-of-10 shooting. He also grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds, showing more meanness than usual, and blocked two shots. Sheldon found gaps against Suttons Bay’s zone, hit baseline jumpers and most impressively showed the ability to put the ball on the floor and beat smaller defenders with the dribble. He passed alertly from blocks and hig post. In the second half Sheldon made a spin move from the left wing that you’ll see very rarely from a 6-8 sophomore.
