Wednesday, January 5, 2022 | 7:34 PM

We allowed three weeks for teams to flex their muscles at the start of the 2022 season. Now it’s time to see which teams are showing off the most early season power.

The weekly Trib 10 power rankings slot the elite teams from around WPIAL boys and girls basketball.

With these rankings, classifications are thrown out the window and teams are ranked as if playing one big super district tournament.

Starting off the power rankings at No. 1 are a pair of big-school rivals as North Hills tops the boys this week and North Allegheny is once again perched on top in girls hoops.

Here are the first power rankings with overall records from this season.
