Miller Classic Showcases Top Talent

Miller Classic Showcases Top Talent

The Mike Miller classic gives South Dakota the rare opportunity to showcase the states top boys basketball teams, and see how they stack-up against top teams from around the country. Indiana’s La Lumiere, ranked 20th in the nation, was making their third trip to classic. Their head coach Alan Huss explains why they keep coming back.

"It’s a great tournament first. They have got some of the best team across the country come in every year, so you know you’re going to get great games. It’s also a chance to play and see basketball in a city where a lot of our guys wouldn’t come otherwise, said Huss.

Locally, South Dakota has stacked up well against top talent. This year, teams from Sioux Falls picked up win versus teams from both Minnesota and North Carolina. OGorman head coach Derek Robey touches on the competitiveness for his squad in the Miller classic. "You see a lo of that. You all of sudden see South Dakota teams doing a great job competing against teams from other states, and it shows in a classic like this, said Robey."

The players themselves enjoyed the tournament, gave credit to Mitchell for being a great basketball town, and we’re left amazed by the world’s one and only corn palace. "The Corn Palace, the art here is amazing. When I came in today I didn’t know it was of corn until after, then I looked closely when I came back, and thought it was the coolest thing ever," said DeLaSalle sophomore Samm Jones.

La Lumiere and OGorman both finished the tournament with 2 and 0 records.
