The final South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll for the season has been released and it features more chaos in Class AA.

Regular seasons have come to a close and all the attention has shifted to the Round of 16 in each class. Regions are taking place for Class A, B boys and girls, while Class AA will start the Round of 16 this upcoming Friday.

This week's poll is consistent in terms of the teams that are top ranked. It is also consistent in that Class AA boys continues to be a guessing game in ranking spots 3-5. Class AA girls also features one change at the bottom of the ranking as Brandon Valley has jumped into the 5th spot in the final poll.

Class A boys saw no changes in the poll this week, while Class B boys had a little change in the middle. There were no polls released for Class A, B girls this week due to the regular season ending last week.
