Springfield guard Isaac Fink just led his school to a 28-2 season and is now getting ready for his 17u basketball season with the Minnesota Comets. Isaac reflected with NHR today about his junior year and spoke about what is next.
“Overall, I think we had a fantastic season,” Isaac said. ” Although it wasn’t the ending we would like (Springfield lost in the section final to Mayer Lutheran on a buzzer beater), our guys competed every night. Not making the State Tournament will definitely leave a chip on everyone’s shoulder for next season.”
Springfield was the preseason number one so the section loss left a bad taste in Fink’s mouth. That said, he’s been there before and now is motivated to get there again. Fink averaged 26.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 2.8 steals a game this winter and he continues to improve.
“I would say my biggest improvement would have to be strength,” Fink said. “Getting in the weight room this past summer has helped me change my game. I also think my mid-range game has improved through hours of practice.”
Next up for Fink is the Comets Shootout and competing with the Minnesota Comets top squad.
“This upcoming Spring/Summer I am going to be playing with the Comets and Coach Lewis. I’m very excited to play for him and the team he has put together! It is full of great basketball players and ever more important, great people. I think we are going to be a fast pace, shooting team, that can compete with any team in the State.”
It will be a new chapter in Fink’s career. A career that has seen him score 2,376 career points to date along with 865 rebounds, 598 assists, and 327 career steals. Fink has also received several scholarship offers already.
“I have received offers from Moorhead State, Augustana for baseball and basketball, University of Sioux Falls, and St. Cloud State,” Isaac said. “South Dakota State, Minnesota State Mankato, and Southwest Minnesota State have also kept in contact with me.”
Fink is a top ten talent in the senior class and one that the state of Minnesota needs to follow closely.
