  • The Yankton Bucks shocked the #2 ranked Boys Class AA Basketball team in the state Friday night, defeating Harrisburg on the road 66-61.

It was a classic ESD Conference game in that physicality and aggressive paint play led both teams play styles, and a mere eight-point lead was the largest deficit in the game, held by Yankton midway through the 1st quarter.

The Yankton Gazelles, coming off a hard-fought loss versus Huron last Tuesday, had difficulty finding their footing against a tough Harrisburg Girls squad in the opening game of the Friday night double-header, falling 46-19.

Girls:                       Camryn Koletzky – 10 points

                                Macy Drotzmann – 4 points

Boys:                       Rugby Ryken – 33 points (career high)

                                Drew Ryken – 20 points (Four 3-Pointers)

                                Mac Ryken – 4 Steals

                                Michael Mors – 4 Steals

The Gazelles, now (0-3), continue to search for their first win as they host (1-0) Sioux Falls Washington tomorrow night at the Summit Center, tipoff is set for 7pm. The (1-0) Bucks are seeking to capitalize on this momentum and secure another road victory tomorrow night at (0-1) Sioux Falls Washington.
