It was a busy weekend of basketball in Massachusetts, and Saturday saw action in two main events a long way from each other. First, we checked in on the Hall of Fame Spring Classic in Amherst, then headed to the Massachusetts AAU Final Four in Foxboro.
One team that won a pair of games early in Amherst was the BC Eagles, who have a couple of notable wing prospects. Calvin Crawford (6’8″ Sr. SF, Montgomery (NY) Valley Central HS) appears to have the higher ceiling, and he looked better here than in limited viewing last month as he had transition finishes and stickbacks. Teammate Travis Cook (6’4″ Jr. SF, Middletown (NY) High) is a baby physically with some length, which he used to poke the ball away a couple of times. While slight, he’s athletic and is worth keeping an eye on.
