With Harrisburg and Sioux Falls Lincoln losing last week, the Class AA boys poll has now shifted the power to the west side of South Dakota.

Just a little over three weeks remains for the regular season for high school basketball in South Dakota. Most teams are about 12-15 games through the season. We're finally starting to get some separation in the polls around each class.

Class AA boys is the only class to see a new number one team crowned this week. Class AA girls features Sioux Falls O'Gorman making the top-five after a strong week.

The South Dakota Prep Media basketball poll for the week of Jan. 29 is listed below, ranking the top-five teams, the team’s record, points received and ranking in the previous poll. First-place votes are indicated in parentheses.
