Seven teams started the week ranked among the elite in the state, but a bump or two in the road had them headed to the exits.

The latest Trib HSSN weekly boys basketball state rankings heading into the final week of January takes on a new look with seven fresh teams.

Despite the turnover, only one No. 1 team was affected. Math, Civics and Science fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in Class 2A.

The other top teams remain the same from last week Fox Chapel (Class 6A), Archbishop Wood (5A), Monsignor Bonner/Archbishop Prendergast (4A), Lincoln Park (3A) and Vincentian Academy (A) still atop their respective classifications.
