It’s a big weekend of high school basketball in South Dakota. What are the top match-ups? We break it down in The Weekend Menu!

Tasty Appetizer. It doesn’t get any better than the 4pm tip for Aberdeen Christian vs Waubay/Summit, a 4pm Friday clash! The Knights are a two loss squad looking to stay at the top of the Region 1 standings while the Mustangs are a one-loss squad looking to add a win over Aberdeen Christian to a resume that includes wins over Langford Area and Waverly-South Shore. Jackson IsaksonJacksonIsakson6'3" | SGAberdeen Christian | 2023StateSD and Ethan RussellEthanRussell6'4" | SFGreat Plains Lutheran | 2023StateSD make up what could arguably be called the most dangerous sophomore duo in the state. Isakson is a 6-foot-3 wing while Russell is a 6-foot-5 big. Waubay/Summit has an impressive sophomore of their own in 6-foot-2 wing Jonathan JohnstonJonathanJohnston6'2" | SFWaubay/Summit | 2023StateSD.

Specials.  The Hanson Classic takes center stage this weekend and it’s a monster day of games. The contests of course are at the Corn Palace and all eyes – that like basketball – will be focused on what happens. Here is the line-up with our PHD team ranking attached.
