The Dakota XII Conference contains some of the best talent in the state and this year from top to bottom the league is once again very tough.  This year's 2016 class of seniors in the Dakota XII includes last year's league MVP Ty Hoglund and overall four first team all league players from a year ago. 

Beresford

Returning Starters. Chris Kropuenske (5-9, PG, 12), Thatcher Schlup (6-1, SF, 12), Logan Busch (6-5, C, 12)

Returning Bench Players. Hunter Bergland (6-0, SG, 12), Brandon O’Connell (5’10, SG, 11),

New Talent.  Jonah Larson (6’5, PF, 10), Seth Huot (6’4, PF, 11), Peter Cruz (G, 10), Caleb Carnes (6’2, PF, 10)

Trending.  Up

Thoughts. A four win team last year that brings back three starters, three from the bench, and has a nice sophomore class ready to support.  Logan Busch alone around the basket will get them some more wins but he should have more support this year.

Canton

Returning Starters.  Alex DeJong (6’3, PF, 11), Sam Peterson (6’2, PG, 12), Jake Peterson (6’0, SG, 11), Andrea Elcock (6’5, C, 12)

Returning Bench Players. Christian Beachler (6’5, PF, 10),

New Talent.  Ian Vlk (6’1, SG, 11), Spencer Osborne (6’2, PF, 11)
