(Continued)

Noel is projected to go No. 2 overall by nbadraft.net. Joining him as a potential lottery pick is the pride of the North Shore, Hamilton’s Michael Carter-Williams, who is projected as the No. 13 pick.

Could this conversation be about Haverhill’s Noah Vonleh a year from now? The Indiana-pound star is projected to go No. 5 in the 2014 NBA draft by the same website.

Spinner sighting

We may only be two weeks into the baseball season, but three former Lowell Spinners have already made their major league debuts.

Along with the obvious Jackie Bradley Jr. (Spinner in 2011), there is Sox reliever Alex Wilson and Twins pitcher Ryan Pressly, who were both Spinners in 2009.

Fun fact about Wilson, he is only the second player in major league history to be born in Saudi Arabia. His father was there working in the natural gas industry.

Aces in the hole

Through the first 13 games of the regular season, no Red Sox starter has allowed more than three earned runs in an appearance.

That’s the best run to start a season for an American League team since Milwaukee in 1990. And the Brewers left the AL in 1997.
