Cooper was welcomed back to Maine and Nokomis Wednesday night with about 100 people and firetrucks escorting him to Nokomis High School.

Flagg helped lead the USA U-17 team to the Gold Medal in Spain. He averaged 19.6 minutes per game with 10 rebounds, 9.3 points per game, 2.9 blocked shots and 2.4 steals per game. Although many thought Cooper should have been chosen as the MVP of the Tournament, he was selected to the All-Star Five.
