We had an off week with the holiday last week so we're going back through two weeks of top plays to bring you the best of the best ...

We start things off at No. 8 with girls high school basketball and it's Newell's Kayden Steele getting the steal against Faith at the West River Tournament and she goes coast to coast for the layup ... but it wasn't enough as Faith rolled in this one ....

7. More West River Tournament action at No. 7, this time from the boys and it's New Underwood guard Dusty Merchen with the sweet little floater against Hot Springs ... tough shot as the Tigers took this one 55 to 38 ...

6. Back to the girls at No. 6 and it's Rapid City Christian freshman Olivia Kieffer going behind the back twice against Oelrichs for the short jumper ... and then more from Kieffer as she beats the press and finds Sar ah Burkhalter with the nice pass to beat the buzzer ... as the Comets run away from the Tigers.

5. College men's hoops action at No. 5 and it's the Kiwi connection sa Wilfred Dickson spins and finds Logan Elers for the layup ... as the Hardrockers drilled Colorado Colorado Springs 71 to 49 ...

4. Hardrocker women at No. 4 and it's Sami Steffeck showing why she's the all-time leader in 3-pointers made for the Mines women's program as she shows off the touch on the stepback ... but the Hardrockers fell to Colorado Mines in an overtime thriller ...

3. At No. 3 it's the Rapid City Rush on the attack against Wichita ... and MATT Ustaski shows off the stickhandling but can't quite get it to go but TANNER KARTY IS THERE TO FINISH THE JOB as the Rush took two of three from Wichita over the weekend ...

2. At No. 2 it's Rapid City Stevens guard Daniel Vigoren with the nice dish to big man Mason Steele and Steele flushes that one home with two hands as the Raiders beat Douglas out in Box Elder ... big fella showing how to finish ...

1. And it's girls high school hockey at No. 1 as Aberdeen goalie Shelby Snow stones the first shot ... and then check this out as she dives back into the play to stop the second attempt ... great effort from the Aberdeen netminder there and that is this week's FOX's Finest.

The Rapid City Rush took two of three off of division rival Wichita last weekend as they look to remain in the top four of the Mountain Division and make the ECHL playoffs after a four-year absence ...

The Rush will play every game from here on out against division foes, with two-game sets on the road against Idaho and Wichita over the next two weeks before returning home on February 12th for three games against the first-place Allen Americans ... with the second through sixth place teams in the division separated by just 10 points, every trip out is becoming more and more important.

YEAH ITS VERY IMPORTANT. THE STANDINGS ARE SO CLOSE RIGHT NOW THAT EVERY GAME FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR IS CRUCIAL SO YOU GOT TO KEEP PLAYING HARD AND MAKING SURE THAT WE GET THE WIN AT THE END OF THE DAY. THEIR WORK ETHIC. THESE GUYS ARE A GOOD GROUP OF GUYS.

THEY COME TO WORK EVERYDAY. THEY TRULY LOVE EACH OTHER AND BELIEVE IN EACH OTHER AND THAT'S A BIG THING THAT'S NUMBER ONE WHEN IT COMES TO ANY TEAM.
