Lincoln Park boys, Blackhawk girls top final Trib 10 rankings

Wednesday, March 27, 2024 | 9:59 PM

When the first edition of the Trib 10 boys basketball power rankings were released, defending state champions Lincoln Park and Imani Christian were the top two teams.

So it was written, so let it be done.

While the Saints slid down a couple spots before making their way back up to No. 2, the Leopards never left the top spot and for the second straight season, Lincoln Park finishes the campaign on top in the boys power rankings.

Blackhawk began the season at No. 6 in the girls Trib 10, but finishes on top after winning PIAA gold and avoiding double silver linings for a second season in a row.

There was one team change in each ranking from last week as the Fort Cherry boys and South Fayette girls scurried to finish the season in the Trib 10.

Here are the final Trib 10 basketball power rankings with the overall records from this season, followed by where that team was ranked last week.

These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
