CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Michael Finke has had a target on his back ever since he committed to Illinois over a year ago.  He was the focus of opposing defenses his entire senior season - and all he did was take his game to a whole new level.  The Centennial senior is the 2014 WCIA 3 area boys basketball player of the year.

Finke was named an IBCA All-State selection after averaging nearly 20 points and 10 rebounds per game as a senior.  He did it while shooting better than 55% from the field.  Finke led the Chargers to an outright Big 12 title.  He finished fourth on Centennial's all-time career scoring list and second in school history in rebounds.
