The final week of the regular season of high school basketball in South Dakota has arrived, and we still don't know who the top team in boys Class AA is.

Another week and another week of chaos in boys Class AA. Previous top-ranked Yankton fell to Huron 67-65 last week. The Tigers had three wins last week over Brookings, O'Gorman, and Yankton. Speaking of O'Gorman, the Knights dropped another game last week to Mitchell. The largest drop-off took place with Brandon Valley with the Lynx losing games to Harrisburg, Roosevelt, and Watertown. Those three losses took the Lynx from second to out of the top-five for the week.

Every other class this week remains fairly consistent from prior weeks. Hanson entered the boys Class B standings for the week, while Howard joined the party in girls Class B.

The South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll for the week of Feb. 25 is listed below, ranking the top-five teams, the team's record points received and ranking in the previous poll. First-place votes are listed in parentheses.
