This week's South Dakota Prep Media Basketball Poll features two classes with a new number one ranked team.

Viborg-Hurley has taken the top spot in Class B boys following another strong week and a 16-1 overall record. The other jump to number one this week took place in Class A girls where West Central has overtaken the top spot after an overtime win against Lennox. The Trojans' undefeated season was challenged last week with two overtime games, but they conquered both tests to move to 16-0 on the year.

Class AA sees a few changes this week. Lincoln (boys) remains as the top-ranked boy's team. The O'Gorman boys have jumped into second after wins over Roosevelt and Brookings last week combined with a Brandon Valley loss to Huron.

O'Gorman remains on top of the Class AA girl's poll. Brandon Valley moved up to second, but the biggest move of the week came for the Lincoln Patriots. Lincoln (12-5), who has been undervalued in the poll all year and penalized in the eyes of the voters for playing two of the top teams out of Minnesota, has won 10 of their last 11 games. The Patriots are 12-3 against South Dakota Class AA schools this season.
