The very first Super 15


For years, a faction of people have suggested having an all-class state high school basketball tournament. There's also been years in which state champions from all of the classifications have played non-sanctioned games after the season ends in order to determine the best of the best in Montana.

Simply put, in basketball, there's times when classification doesn't mean as much.

So in honor of that theory, the Havre Daily News sports staff has decided to put together its own Super 15 boys and girls basketball polls each week. The polls are based on the sports' staff's opinion, knowledge of teams, head-to-head competition against local teams, last year's results and statistics. We will devise the poll each week before the Montana Prep Power Polls are released as to not be influenced by those rankings. It will be fun to put together rankings based on basketball and not classification, and we'll see how things shake out for those teams at the end of the season.

So here is the first-ever HDN Super 15 boys and girls basketball polls.
