In this episode of Chasing Maine, Cooper Flagg, and his brother Ace, return to Maine for a pair of wildly popular high school games with their Montverde Academy (Fla.) team.

The Flaggs transferred to Montverde two years ago, after winning a state title with Nokomis High School.

Today, Montverde is the top-ranked team in the country, while Cooper — widely regarded as the best U.S. high school senior this year — has committed to playing at Duke next year.

Chasing Maine is a video series that explores Maine from a distinct visual perspective. Join veteran Maine journalist and storyteller Roger McCord as he chases the people, places and things that define the unique character of the Pine Tree State. Follow the Chasing Maine playlist on YouTube.
