Seven teams started the week ranked among the elite in the state, but a bump or two in the road had all seven headed to the exits in the hopes of returning soon.

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

Of all the changes, only one top-ranked team was affected as Math, Civics and Science fell from No. 1 to No. 3 in Class 2A.

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