Re: Couple of good match ups tonight - 2/4/20

DeSmet vs Colman Egan will be 20 plus win for DS. The DeSmet team defense is impressive. The DS guard play is superior. Kalen Garry will be the best player on the floor as he will be in most games. Dalton Voelker is a load. Really good basketball player because of his size and physicality. But he is...

Surprise Scores

Two surprise scores from last night in cross class games: Sioux Valley over Huron 65-48 in Volga. Shows how little difference there is when the top teams from AA play the top teams from A. Max Nielson is a great point guard for the Cossacks, starter at point since 8th grade. Marty over Tiospa Zina i...

Re: Hoop City Classic makeup

My guess at DWU Classic it will be DeSmet vs White River. Platte Geddes or Canistota are options too.

Re: Hoop City Classic makeup

Aberdeen Christian has a great record with only two losses to Class A teams. Rorhbach is the real deal. Hanson also has a great record with only two losses to Class B’s top teams: Platte Geddes and Viborg Hurley. Reggie Slaba is the real deal. I think Hanson has more depth. I like Hanson in a close ...

Re: 2020 Hanson classic pairings

White River is well coached but so is Canistota. Marshall has been getting the most out of a lineup without key pieces from last year who transferred out. Their beat down of Lyman last week showed that they are still the top dog in their region. Canistota has the blueprint on how to beat White River...

Re: Top 16 Power Rankings

In AA the top teams look about right. In A, Groton is the biggest surprise. 8-0, but I still don’t think they are a top 3 team. The top teams in B look good also.

Re: DVC Tourney opens up tonight in Colman and White

St Mary beat Arlington in the championship game, 66-57. DRSM is a top 10 team, Arlington is close but not quite top 10.

New Football Classifications

There is a proposal to make three 11 man classes and two 9 man classes. The state’s Athletic Directors must approve and then the SDHSAA Board must approve. 11AA = the 9 largest schools plus O’Gorman 11A = the next 16 largest schools 11B = all the remaining schools with male ADM of 56.001 or larger 9...

White River has owned the Jones County. Lyman is one of the positive surprises in B.

I would be surprised if it wasn’t Arlington vs St Mary in the championship game. Although Elkton Lake Benton could surprise.

Some nice match ups! PK vs ABR - Parkston BE vs Faith - Faith is having a nice year. Not sure of the level of competition. BE can play with anyone. Record doesn't give them justice CWL v.

Re: Viborg-Hurley at Howard 1/20

Will definitely be closer than last year's 25 point spread as Howard is much improved. Think it will be similar to Howard - De Smet game with about 4-8 point win for V-H, but who knows? That's why they play the game.... I agree. Howard showed they could play with a B heavyweight in their game with ...

Re: SF Christian at Dell Rapids Tuesday night

I’ll take the Quarriers in this one. It is hard to pick against SFC, as tough as they have been the last several years. Dells at home wins a close one.

Re: Big Games in Class B this week! DeSmet at St Mary

First off, Connor Libis is an excellent player. DRSM is a very good team. DeSmet is just flat out better. Very telling game. Kalen Garry has to be the best sophomore in Class B, and one of the best in the state. The DS defense is stifling ...... most B teams do not handle the ball well enough to pla...

Sanborn Central Woony hosts undefeated Howard. This will help establish the region 4 pecking order. Noah Dickson for SCW is the real deal. Big and strong ...... heckuva athlete.
