Yankton Buck Basketball Supporters,

What an experience!!! The Yankton Bucks were able to win the Gary Munsen Tournament Championship which was apart of the bigger Hoop City Classic. The first game took place in the Corn Palace on Friday, December 28th. The championship game took place on Saturday, December 29th at the Sanford Pentagon. 

The Bucks won the opening round of the tournament against one of the best teams in Wisconsin in its class in Dominican, Wisconsin. Dominican is led by Alex Antetokounmpo, whose older brother plays in the NBA for the Milwaukee Bucks and has been an all-star the past few years. As a team the Bucks were able to hold the Wisconsin star to just 4 points (he was averaging 24 coming into the contest) and the team to 52 points overall. Hot shooting allowed us to get a lead early and come away with the 72-52 win. 

The championship game saw a rematch from the previous year with the Bucks once again facing off against one of Minnesota's best high school programs in DeLaSalle. DeLaSalle defeated the Bucks by 4 last season. This season saw the Bucks come out on top in another close one by the score of 71-65 in overtime.
