Wellesley High School senior basketball guard Cooper Ainge next year is reportedly heading to Brigham Young University, where he will play for the basketball team that his father — former Boston Celtics player Danny Ainge — played for in the late 1970s/early 1980s. The Recruit Scoop blog says he doesn’t have a scholarship yet. BYU’s team last year made the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament, led by gunner Jimmer Fredette, now with the Sacramento Kings.
Cooper’s brother Austin also played for BYU a few years ago (and his sister-in-law Crystal Ainge is the new girls’ volleyball coach at Wellesley High).
