Every ranked team in classes 6A, 4A, 3A, 2A and A from last week’s Trib HSSN boys basketball state rankings were winners in the opening round of the PIAA playoffs.

That was not the case in Class 5A.

Not only did all six WPIAL Class 5A boys teams get wiped in the opening round Friday, three of the five ranked teams saw their seasons end.

Archbishop Wood and West Chester East survived and advanced, but district champs Wallenpaupack, Southern Lehigh and Laurel Highlands exited the Road to Hershey.

Expect more changes this week as the second round and quarterfinals take place in the PIAA basketball playoffs.
