With the postseason here for everyone, this is the final South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll for the season.

Class A and B Girls began postseason play last week and, because of that, are not included in the final rankings of the season. The remaining classes begin postseason play this week with the region rounds (A/B Boys) or awaiting the start of the SoDak16 (AA).

The final poll for this season shows how wide-open Class AA Boys is heading into the playoffs. Three teams received first-place votes with Yankton now the top-ranked team in the class. Washington finished the regular season 18-2 with both of their losses to the surging O'Gorman Knights. O'Gorman received three first-place votes to end the year.
