Shelton."

Seth erickson spent five seasons on the basketball court at oregon tech focusing on improving his game one day at a time.

His goals were aimed at making that day or game the best of his career.

But when the n-a-i-a national tournament was canceled, his thoughts turned toward the future.

(topic key) a professional basketball career was never a pressing issue for seth erickson as he carried out his senior campaign.

After completely breaking his fourth metacarpal, known as a boxer's fracture, on his non-shooting hand -- his only focus was getting back to the court.

I just want to play one season over there to start, see how i like it, if i enjoy it, you know, playing it professionally and just seeing where that takes me."

And as it has been since the start of his career, erickson just wants to play basketball and keep getting better.

Erickson says, "i had some agents asking me how much money i wanted to make and that's not really a goal for me, i just want to be in a place where i feel like i can elevate in division and keep improving my game and obviously be somewhere that would
