It was an active first week of January in the Trib HSSN weekly boys basketball state rankings with a couple of teams losing their grip on the top spot and others falling completely out.

We have new No. 1 teams in Class 6A and 4A with Kennedy Catholic and Archbishop Carroll each slipping down a notch.

Fox Chapel in 6A and Monsignor Bonner/Archbishop Prendergast in 4A are now the kings of their classifications castle, at least for this week.

Eight teams were bounced from the top five this week, which means eight new teams have cracked the rankings with only Class 2A missing out on the changes from last week.
