Star and supporter

Nicole Boudreau loves helping lead Andover, her twin Danielle loves watching her do it

(Continued)

"She'll help me out with my sports and my schoolwork and everything but I can help her out with clothes and makeup and all that stuff and it all works out," Danielle said.

"I've looked up to her," Danielle added. "My sister is always there for pointers. When we used to be on the same team together she'd pull me aside and tell me what I need to work on and she'd do it really friendly and helpfully."

The girls said they mostly have the same friends and spend a lot of time hanging around with each other.

"To see (Danielle) walk in with Nicole's No. 25 shirt, that was pretty impressive to me," Andover coach Jim Tildsley said.

The Nicole Boudreau factor

So it goes like this: Nicole Boudreau having a good game equals Andover beating Central Catholic.

Every time Boudreau has scored more than 20 points, Andover has won against Central. The one time she scored fewer (10 points), Andover lost by two. In that loss, Boudreau was playing with a hurt ankle and she was faceguarded heavily.

"She gets the shot off as quick as anyone I've ever coached," Andover coach Jim Tildsley said. "She follows through and she knows how to get open. I believe shooting is 75, 80 percent confidence and she has a lot of confidence and when she misses, she's going to keep shooting."
