Michael Carter-Williams and Trevor Cooney are going to be spending a lot of time together over the next five years. They're both in Syracuse Basketball's Class of 2011 and, in theory, SU's backcourt of the future. The duo got a chance to feel that partnership on for size at the King City Classic where they played on the same team.
"It was fun, I knew Mike as player, but I didn’t know him as a teammate," Cooney said of what it was like to play with Carter-Williams at camp.
Carter-Williams echoed that sentiment, saying, "Nice to see what we’ll do in the future and get to know him as a person." This was the duo’s first time running in the backcourt together.
The two are also doing a little bit of recruiting on behalf of the SU coaches in their spare time. Cooney has been working Rakeem Christmas and they intend to put in a good word with highly-prized recruit Anthony "The Unibrow" Davis.
The duo already seem to have the camaraderie thing down, they've got a couple more years to work on their jumpers. After that, the Dome's the limit. Get to work on your C-based nicknames now.
