Against Fargo South the number one ranked player in the Class of 2023, Conner Kraft Conner Kraft 6'8" | PF Shanley | 2023 State ND , had no problem asserting his dominance. The highly respected Deacon finished the contest scoring 29 points, dishing the ball well, and blocking shots like a North Dakota Mutombo. Kraft also went a perfect 7-7 from the strip, and had two made shots from beyond the arc. At his height with the skillset that he possess, the sky is the limit for this Shanley star.

Other top performers

Senior guard Tyler Kraft Tyler Kraft 6'3" | SG Fargo Shanley | 2022 State ND contributed 8 points in the win against the Fargo Bruins. The Concordia Cobber commit made two shots from beyond the arc and added a steal. As the season progresses I believe that the senior will be looked to for leadership as the Deacons approach March.
Jack Pollert (Shanley)
Providing a spark off the bench for Shanley was senior guard Jack Pollert. The Deacon scored 10 points, rebounded well, and was disruptive on the defensive end getting multiple steals. With any successful team comes a strong sixth man, and Pollert plays that role well.
Zunekia McGill Zunekia McGill 6'0" | PG Fargo South | 2022 State ND (South)
Senior guard Diamond Mcgill was a key reason that the Bruins were fighting until the end. In the game against Shaley Mcgill had 13 points, was active on the boards, and was a thief on the defensive end. Not to mention that the guard also had multiple made three point shots, and played with energy the entire game. As we approach March, don’t be surprised to see Diamond helping lead the charge for Fargo South.
Dean Grant (South)
Fargo South shooter Dean Grant finished the game against Shanley with 9 points and a couple made shots from the arc. The junior has been near or at the top of the EDC in three point percentage consistently this season, and the Bruins will need that as the end of the regular season begins to loom near.
