Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - About a month ago, we introduced you to Tanner and Carter Kretchman, brothers who were playing basketball for different high schools.

They both where hoping to just lead their teams to a state tournament appearance.

They ended up doing much more than that, both winning state titles and both winning MVP.

Tanner Kretchman-Class A Basketball MVP: "We thought it was a possibility, but obviously it was a pretty tough task and we had to do a lot of work and we had to play great tournaments as a team to fulfill it."

Carter Kretchman-Class B Basketball MVP: "It was always in the back of my mind but I never really really thought about it to hard because I knew how hard it would have been for both of us but I guess it worked out."

And the 2014 North Dakota Class B boys basketball tournament MVP, from Oak Grove Carter Kretchman.

Craig Kretchman-Tanner and Carter's Dad: "It was really special it was something we practiced for our whole lives and the boys where always good at coming to the gym at a very young age. They worked hard for it, they never dreamed that they would get this far, some of the awards that they have won they weren't going for that, they where really just trying to be starters someday on their high school team is what they where working for, but as it turns out it turned out much more than that but who would have known."

And the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, Tanner Kretchman, Fargo Davies.

Tanner you where at the EDC Championship Game during his State Championship, how tough was it not being able to be there and watch your brother win?

Tanner Kretchman: "It was difficult, my mind was always kinda wondering off during the game like how are they doing and actually during the awards I got an update from a fan I looked across and they said they won so I just got really excited right there."

Carter Kretchman: "We know that winning a state championship as a team is what he wanted most and to see that happen was great."

Tanner Kretchman: "The conversations are longer cause we have to talk about two games that happened so it's just been great. Just getting our views about it through each game, I don't know it's pretty awesome."

Tanner has committed to play basketball at MSU Moorhead next year,

while Carter will help Oak Grove try and defender their state title as a senior.

Both say they are looking forward to continue watching each other play.
