Whether you are a fan of your local district team or you like to know what’s going on in boys basketball around Pennsylvania, the TribLive High School Sports Network has you covered this winter.

We rank the top WPIAL teams in each class every Sunday and follow up with our PIAA rankings every Tuesday during the season.

The latest edition of the PIAA boys rankings has five WPIAL teams after losing two but gaining one from a week ago.

Butler and Aliquippa suffered their first losses, which included a heartbreaking loss to Lincoln Park in overtime by the Quips. Those losses dropped Butler from the 6A and Aliquippa from the 3A rankings.

However, joining the state-wide fun was undefeated Quaker Valley, which replaced Scranton Prep in Class 4A.
