2020 South Dakota Class AA Combined Basketball Tournament Bracket
The 2020 South Dakota high school Class AA combined state basketball tournament will feature the O'Gorman girls and Yankton boys entering as the top seeds.
O'Gorman sits at 21-0 entering the tournament and they will see a familiar foe in front of them in the quarterfinal round. Following a win at Huron, Roosevelt punched a ticket to the dance and set up a third meeting this season against the Knights. Lincoln, Washington, Brandon Valley, and Harrisburg all qualified for state this season as well.
Yankton (17-4) will open as the top seed in the boy's tournament and they will play Rapid City Central (11-10) to start the day. Roosevelt and O'Gorman both qualified and will play against each other in the first round. Washington and Rapid City Stevens will meet for a second time, while Brandon Valley and Huron also meet for a return bout in the first round.
All games will be played at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center and Sioux Falls Arena on March 19-21.
