Focke called the team’s section tournament loss “a disappointing end to a great season.”

Sobaski (26 points) and Shanks (17) scored nearly 70 percent of their team’s points in the game.

Sobaski still has his senior season to look forward to, and he recently committed to North Dakota State.

Shanks, committed before his junior season to play at Utah State. But he didn’t always know he’d play basketball beyond high school.

“I’ve always been huge. I had always been told I could have a future in basketball,” he said, It wasn’t until seventh or eighth grade, though, that he told himself, “If I want to play college basketball and not just be another tall guy, I’ve got to start working.”

“I committed myself to it, and it’s paid off,” he said.

Shanks said he’ll work on a strength program over the summer with the Aggies before they decide if he’ll compete as a true freshman or take a redshirt season.
