There was a fair amount of change in the Trib HSSN weekly boys basketball state rankings over the holidays, especially in the higher classifications.

Two Class 6A teams along with one each from 5A and 4A dropped out, opening the door for four new teams to crack the top five.

There were no changes at all in 3A, 2A and A except for a flip-flop in Class A.

All six top-ranked teams before the holidays — Kennedy Catholic (6A), Archbishop Wood (5A), Archbishop Carroll (4A), Lincoln Park (3A), Math, Civics & Science (2A) and Vincentian Academy (A) — continue to be No. 1 as District 12 and the WPIAL continue to dominate the top spot.
