The 2018-2019 South Dakota High School Basketball season kicks off this week. We take a look at the preseason rankings for the Top 10 teams in each class. Defending champs Yankton lead AA, Tea leads class A and Bridgewater-Emery leads class B.
The Class AA defending champions claim your preseason #1 spot. Brandon Valley looks to be very competitive this year. SF Roosevelt has gotten older and more experienced. Huron and Watertown look to leave their marks as newcomers to the Top 10. (Inside the Rankings: https://www.prephoops.com/2018/12/inside-the-rankings-class-aa-snapshot/)

Bridgewater-Emery is #1 to start the year coming of a 3rd place finish in 2018 and a 2017 championship. Clark/Willow Lake, White River, Timber Lake, Sully Buttes and Canistota all finished top 6 at the state tourney last year, and this year and they start all in the top 6 again. Look out for much improved Viborg-Hurley. (Inside the Rankings: https://www.prephoops.com/2018/12/inside-the-rankings-class-b-snapshot/)
