The Minnesota Basketball News did not have a new issue of their publication but did update their state rankings in high school boys basketball.  The update came out Wednesday.

Their publication typically is released on Friday. Had they waited (I know Friday was December 31st) until then the rankings would probably be closer to accurate because all the holiday showcases and tournaments would be concluded.

Without that information provided here is what Minnesota Basketball News listed as their Top 20 in each class as of December 29, 2021. I have added any holiday results I  could find.
