October Notebook + MMFC Part 2

Cooper Ainge went off for 30 on Saturday night at Babson
 Middlesex Magic Fall Classic Part II
- The Brothers Cooper and Crew Ainge had folks talking this weekend at Babson.  Cooper Ainge '12 has always been able to play, but now that he has stretched out a little and gotten noticeably faster and stronger, he has become significantly more dangerous on the court.  On Saturday night, playing for his Wellesley HS team in the 18u division, Cooper dropped a business-like 30 (8 treys) on his Middlesex Magic teammates. (Middlesex Magic won by 20 or so) When he wasn't reigning treys, Cooper was blowing by defenders to break down the defense to create scoring opportunitis for his Raider mates.  It was apparent that Cooper has taken his game to a new level and the crystal ball says this trend of ascension will continue...Meanwhile, playing for the Middlesex Magic sophomores in the 16u final against BABC, Crew Ainge '14 arrived on the scene with a no-conscience, free-wheeling, gun-slinging performance in which he showed no hesiatation in attacking the seasoned BABC pressure defense with the dribble and showing off his vision while creating for a teammate or pulling up off the squeeze for a Jason Williams-like quick release long ball.  He made a handful of 'em against the Black and Gold and also attacked the basket and finished athletically on the secondary break. Still a pup physically, Crew is a backcourt player with a lot of potential.  It should be exciting to watch the Ainge brothers on the court together for Wellesley which will contend for a state title this winter.  Part's III & IV tomorrow.
