Trib 10: List of undefeated teams getting shorter in WPIAL basketball

Thursday, January 20, 2022 | 12:29 AM

As we hit the midway point of section play in WPIAL basketball, there are fewer and fewer perfect teams in the district.

There are six boys and six girls teams that are undefeated in mid-January.

While those dozen district teams hit the hardwood with big bull’s-eyes each week, so do the teams that are feeling the power in the latest Trib 10 rankings.

Central Catholic beating North Catholic then falling to Fox Chapel had a ripple effect on the boys rankings, but there were no teams falling out of the Top 10.

That was not the case with the girls, as Union edging three-time defending champion Rochester in a Section 1-A showdown bumped the Rams out and lifted the undefeated Scotties into the power rankings for the first time.

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