Magic Duo Heading South
The Middlesex Magic AAU program has announced two more commitments in recent weeks with Dover-Sherborn (MA) forward Brendan Olski and Rivers forward Connor MacIsaac both planning to continue their careers at Washington and Lee University in Virginia.
Olski's decision came nearly two weeks ago now while MacIsaac made his choice just late last week. While both players are 6-foot-6 forwards, they have compatible styles that should compliment each other well at the next level.
Olski is a rugged forward who scores the ball well around the rim, has solid range on his jump shot and is a very long and active player on the defensive end of the floor as well as on the glass.
"Brendan is a four year Middlesex Magic player who consistently added elements to his game each year and worked relentlessly to become a college basketball player," Magic head coach and director Michael Crotty Jr. told NERR. "Coach Hutchinson is getting a very solid post player who will be a big part of the Washington and Lee program for the next four years!"
MacIsaac is another long standing member of the Magic program who has consistently expanded his game. The Rivers School forward has good length to compliment his solid size and is consequently not just a good rebounder but also a solid shot-blocker and rim protector. Offensively, he has the versatility to stretch opposing defenses out to the arc, face-up and attack his man and also play with his back to the basket.
"I believe Connor will have a shot to make an immediate impact on the court for the Generals," Crotty said. "Connor played a huge role in our 11th grade state championship victory in 2015, and he becomes the second member of our program to pledge to Coach Hutchinson in the last two weeks."
