The 2012-2013 season was one of hard work and enjoying the company of teammates.  The team bonded well.  The team was very successful off the court, unfortunately, that success did not transfer to the games.

South opened their season against Chanhassen.  The Tigers were completely destroyed by Chanhassen, losing by 60, 81-21.  The team reversed directions against Columbia Heights with their first win of the season, 51-38.  The wins would be few during this season however.

The Tigers went on a five-game losing streak.  Losses to Minnehaha Academy, 69-33, and Maranatha Christian Academy, 73-34, came before the conference season started.  Losses to Edison, 49-338, and Washburn, 77-42, put the Tigers in last place in the conference with an 0-2 record.  The fifth loss in a row was to non-conference opponent Cambridge-Isanti, 69-37.  The streak ended with their first conference win over Roosevelt, 64-60.

The team came back from Winter Break and lost four more games in a row.  Richfield defeated the Tigers 63-25.  That was followed by losses to St. Paul Johnson, 59-52, Southwest, 73-37m and Concordia Academy, 54-33  This streak was broken with a win over Henry, 73-31.
