MBK: 2014 Pentagon Classic Is A Success

MBK: 2014 Pentagon Classic Is A Success
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Temperatures stayed warm this weekend at the Sanford Pentagon. The inaugural 2014 Pentagon Boys classic was a 9-game event, kicking off at 9 AM, and running close to 11 PM. It was a full day of hoops, and for the majority of participants, an honor to take part. Madison head coach Michael Ricke talks about what it meant for the bulldogs to play in the first ever classic.

"It means a lot. My coaches and I were talking before the game, and you know, you don’t get invited to types of events if you have an average program. I think it speaks to the type of program we’ve been able to build over the last 8 to 10 years and hopefully will continue to build on after this year," said Ricke.

The event not only gives South Dakota the opportunity to showcase the brand new Sanford Pentagon, but also puts on display the top-notch South Dakota basketball talent. St. Paul’s Henry-Sibley High School is coached by 20-year veteran Lernell James. He said he was pleased with the skill level and was impressed by the competition. "I think it’s fantastic. The competition in South Dakota is phenomenal. The kids are big, very physical, very strong, very fundamental, so for us, where we come from, that’s our style of play. It’s nice to be challenged physically with other teams that can execute as well as we do," siad James.

Overall, South Dakota teams finished the classic 6-1, including a big win by Lincoln over the number 7 team in Minnesota, the Tartan Titans.
