Lots of great 'B' players in our state. Coachwatch, I note that you have 7 on your 1st team & I think the max per team is 6. I think your 1st team is probably spot on. Both you & JDJ need to take over the Hanson Anderson Publication. I think you guys are quite passionate about High school hoops & we need a new "Hanson & Anderson". You could be Hanson & JDJ could be Anderson!

And Cletus. I appreciate the new guys doing the Hansen/Anderson and keeping it going, but really miss the old days with Dick doing the stories and write ups. They were so good. There are so many knowledgeable SD Hoops fans out there. I would be terrible for AA hoops though.

I agree with this post, except the last part of it. The Best 8th Grader I saw play varsity this year was Castlewood's Lane Tvedt. I was able to get to see both Mitchell and Tvedt play, and imo, Tvedt is the superior player.

I'm hearing this will be officially announced next week. Week of April 6th. Not sure what day yet. Class B first , then A, then AA is how it usually has happened.

(Update! Will be announced on Tuesday, 4/7/20.)
