Class A State Tournament: No. 1 Tea Area vs. No. 2 Sioux Falls Christian 7:30 p.m.
The rematch of two Dak12 foes that have a lot of respect for one another, will be a great way to cap off the 2018-19 basketball season. The Titans have gotten the best of the Chargers the past two times they have played each other. Tea Area upset them at the state tournament last year in the semifinals and then beat up on them earlier this season in Sioux Falls.
Analysis: The Chargers will look to get revenge against the Titans and will have a good shot of doing it if Mitchell Goodbary continues to play like he has. The senior has been dominating opposing teams in the paint. He's making clutch shots along with clutch plays on the defensive side to help his Charger team into the finals. On the other side, Tea Area comes into the contest after surviving a TOUGH test against Pine Ridge. They played one of their most physical games of the season against the Thorpes and outlasted them to earn their third straight trip to the finals.
Players to watch:
Tea Area: Noah Freidel scored 20 first-half points against the Thorpes
