High school seniors around the state have most likely played their last games in their high school careers including Okemos seniors Mitchell Sambaer and Rio Tomlinson; Sambaer waits to close another noteworthy basketball season while Tomlinson’s final season had yet to start. 

“I’m not sure if my senior season is over or not yet which is pretty frustrating,” Sambaer wrote in an email. “Obviously school was also cancelled for at least the next three weeks, but I feel like there’s growing belief that it’ll be longer than that.”
