While the district playoffs continue throughout Pennsylvania, there were few changes in this week’s Trib HSSN weekly boys basketball state rankings.

This might be the final quiet week as far as changes go the rest of the season with the district semifinals and finals this week, then the PIAA playoffs and the Road to Hershey starting next week.

Prior to the start of the state postseason, only two teams lost their grip and fell out of the weekly top five, and both changes occurred in Class 5A.

Gettysburg from District 3 and Cathedral Prep from District 10 dropped out and were replaced by New Oxford from D-3 and Pottsville from D-11.

Those at the top of their class heading into the final week of February are West Lawn Wilson (6A), Archbishop Wood (5A), Imhotep Charter (4A), Neumann-Goretti (3), Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (2A) and Elk County Catholic (A).

Half of the six No. 1 teams are from District 12 in Philadelphia.
