The second power rankings of the 2022 basketball season are almost a carbon copy of the initial Trib 10 posted a week ago.

That is called the elite of the WPIAL hardwood taking care of business.

There was only one change in each of the boys and girls weekly Trib 10 power rankings.

On the boys side, No. 10 Montour lost twice on back-to-back days to No. 3 Quaker Valley and No. 1 North Hills. The Spartans were replaced by Fox Chapel.

On the girls side, the 10 teams remained the same, but Upper St. Clair slid from No. 3 to No. 7 with a section loss to Bethel Park.

Here are the latest power rankings. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.
