Prseason All State – First Team
Mason Archambault, RC Stevens. Took his team to state last year and many feel he is the best overall player in his class. Mason played a lot of roles this year but this season with so many teammates graduating he will have to score in bunches. Mason put up 11 points and five assists a game as a sophomore.
Nate Davis, Watertown. Our pick for preseason player of the year, Davis can score in just about every way imagined and he’s also one of the better athletes in the state. His speed and skill combo makes him the toughest player to guard in the state of South Dakota right now. Davis put up 19 points, four rebounds, and three assists a game last season.
Sam Siganos, SF Washington. Lead guard that signed with Concordia-St. Paul, a division two school in Minnesota a couple weeks back. Sam was an all state lead guard for the state runner-up last year leading the team in assists and steals while also scoring about eight a game with three boards a night. Sam has quality size for his position and a high ceiling potential wise.
Ben Lauer, SF O’Gorman. The Knights starting big averaged nine points and ten rebounds a contest a game last year plus a couple blocks for the state’s third place team. Ben signed with Minnesota State-Moorhead and is expected to lead the Knights into a sign with lofty expectations.
Tristan Teichmeier, SF Roosevelt. The skilled combo forward from the Rough Riders put up ten points and just under ten rebounds a game last year and has improved his skill set immensely. Tristan signed with the University of Sioux Falls this month and now his focus is on pushing Roosevelt up the Metro Conference standings.
Prseason All State – Second Team
Antonio Casiello, SF O’Gorman. Starting lead guard on last year’s third place team, Casiello is one of the top leaders and best table setters in the state. The guy wins.
Brevin Kaiser, Pierre TF Riggs. His game winning shot this past summer for the Schoolers second squad cultivated a twelve month period of outstanding growth through his junior year.
Anthony Bachmeier, Aberdeen Central. The Central leader at guard, Bachmeier is the guy in charge of taking a team with big expectations and leading them to compete against the state’s best.
Carter Keller, SF Washington. One of the state’s best shooters (consistency wise and in terms of clutch shooting) Carter is a double figure regular and a player that Washington will count on for numbers.
Matt Cartwright, SF O’Gorman. Only played some last year off the bench but now he will step into a big scoring role on the wing. Already has three D2 scholarship offers.
Prseason All State – Third Team
Jack Talley, SF Washington. Junior talent with a load of potential on the wing.
Cole Bergan, Abderdeen Central. Has earned himself two d1 offers before his sophomore year.
Peyton Carr, Huron. Leading of a good Huron program with big expectations.
Reid Sawatzke, Yankton. Missed his junior year to injury, ready for big senior campaign.
Jack Peery, SF O’Gorman. Played both a starting and 6th man role a year ago for a third place team in state
