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

Grand Forks Red River just keeps on winning. The team makeup is so balanced and the roles are so well-defined. Coach Jason Gregory has done a great job of keeping this team so even-keel as they've breezed through the EDC opponents. John Hoplin, Mac Kroeplin and Mack Arvidson get a lot of the headlines, but the total team effort has resulted in no...

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...

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...

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

There are four teams that could make a compelling case to the top team in South Dakota. I elected to go with O'Gorman. They have been the most dominant defense in the state and Connor Schaefbauer has supplied enough offense to win. Their only losses on the year came to out of state teams at the Mike Miller Classic and a tough loss against...

Power Rankings 2/1/12 (South Dakota Girls)

I continue to see Mitchell as the most balanced team in the state. They seem to be improving now that their triple threat of Kerri Young (Jr.), Macey Miller (So.) and Kristin Sabers (Jr.) are healthy and gelling. This young team is scary when they are at the top of their game and still very good when they are not. Aberdeen Central quietly...
