Kings of the Court: A History of Boys Basketball in South Dakota

2022 State Basketball is underway.

It's a good time to watch SDPB's 2012 award-winning documentary 'Kings of the Court.'

The documentary celebrates a century of state Championships in South Dakota. Using photos and footage combined with contemporary interviews, this one-hour documentary tells the story of the cultural phenomenon that is the South Dakota State High School Boys Basketball Tournaments.

The show includes accounts from players, families, sports reporters, and coaches. It explores how the rules have developed, and how the tournaments have changed over the years.

Narrated by Mike Henriksen, 2011 South Dakota Sports Broadcaster of the Year.
