Last week's South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll had each class with a unanimous number one ranked team. This week, that is not the case.

Class AA Boys continue to be a wild card as we approach the end of the regular season. Watertown knocked down number one Yankton 54-53, while Brandon Valley and O'Gorman continued on the winning track. That has led to all three teams receiving first-place votes in this week's poll.

Class B Boys have a similar situation going on. Aberdeen Christian has taken the top spot in the rankings with a 17-2 overall record. Right behind them sits De Smet and Viborg-Hurley. Canistota, who wasn't even ranked last week, jumped into the top-five and even received a first-place vote.

All other classes this week have the same top-ranked team from last week and only a few changes within the top five.

The South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll for the week of Feb. 17 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.
