Just when we all think we have all of the answers, some of the team's around the state start posing new questions.

The last few weeks of the South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll has been consistent in terms of the top-five teams ranked in each. There was a little movement here and there, but nothing that's been too insane.

That has all changed for this week. Two #1 ranked teams from last week lost games including Aberdeen Central (AA Girls) dropping a game to 2-14 Brookings. Sioux Falls Christian (A Girls) drove across the state in freezing cold temperatures to lose to West Central. Both teams have found themselves knocked out of the #1 spot in their classes.

If this past week proved anything, it's that each class is pretty open in regards to who could walk out as a state champion in one month. The regular season for Girls Class A and Class B comes to a close this week with region play starting next Monday. There's a little under two weeks left of the regular season for the rest of the classes to maneuver for seed positions heading into regions and the SoDak16. Everything is up in the air as of now.

And we wouldn't want it any other way!
