Power Rankings 2/15/12 (South Dakota Girls Basketball)

It's tough to decide whether Sioux Falls Washington is as good as advertised or not? On the plus side they've lost just one game on South Dakota turf, that was to #1 Mitchell on the road and they were leading in the fourth quarter before forgetting how to shoot in the last 10 minutes of the game. On the other hand, what is their signature win? A...

Power Rankings 2/15/12 (North Dakota Girls Basketball)

Bismarck Century stays at number one, but they have played in two of their closest games of the year over the past two weeks. Yet the Patriots are still unbeaten on North Dakota soil.

Power Rankings 2/1/12 (North Dakota Boys)

It's getting late in the season and some teams are heating up. Century is one of those teams. Andre Maund and Alex Bray are playing well together and Tom Fraase has boosted it into high gear. They still hang in at #5 in my rankings but could move up if they can take out Mandan on the road Thursday night. Red River got an epic performance out of...
