CHELSEA — When the Wildcats were facing a double-digit deficit heading to the fourth quarter of their Class B state quarterfinal against Milan, Wayland boys’ basketball coach Mike Hudson gave son Avery the green light to shoot.

 
“I know what his range is and I know he can bury those shots,” Mike Hudson said. “So I told him to make sure we got a post touch on the ball, but if it came back out to him he could take his shots.”
 
And that’s exactly what the younger Hudson did, knocking down four 3-pointers—most of them from NBA range—to lead Wayland all the way back to knot the score at 52-52.
