The WPIAL boys and girls basketball regular season is in the rearview mirror as the Path to the Pete begins in earnest on Friday.

Everybody wants to be No. 1 when the district or even the state playoffs are complete.

However, for the regular season, Hampton comes out on top in the boys and a new No. 1 is an old No. 1 with South Fayette taking the top spot for the girls.

Most of the power-ranking teams were winners to end the regular season with only Penn Hills and Uniontown boys and Oakland Catholic, North Allegheny and McKeesport girls stumbling, but not falling out of the Trib 10.

Here are the latest Trib 10 basketball power rankings with overall record and last week’s ranking. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
