The season is officially underway. Class A in North Dakota started practice last Monday and games will get started this Friday and Saturday. North Dakota Class B and South Dakota started to practice this Monday. This is the perfect time to look at who some of the Breakout Players will be this year in both SD & ND.

BREAKOUT PLAYERS FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON

(alphabetically ordered)

Alec Squires Alec Squires 6'10" | C Sioux Valley | 2024 State SD (2024) |6-10 C| Sioux Valley

He is primed for a monster season and the Cossacks will be one of the best in SD. Everyone around the Sioux Valley program is excited for this young big man. I knew Alec was big and long but I was surprised at how athletic he was when I saw him at the Expo. Look for Squires to be a great rim protector and rebounder. He will get many easy buckets after drive-and-dish plays from teammates. I like how he moves without the ball and his strong finishes. I expect Alec’s stock to continue to rise as more people see him stand out this year.
