There was plenty of shuffling going on in this week’s Trib HSSN boys and girls basketball power rankings. However, only two teams slipped out of the Trib 10.

The boys rankings were rocked by a hurricane, a Red Hurricane that is. After crushing previously undefeated Chartiers Valley on the road, New Castle debuts in the power rankings at No. 2.

Butler took the biggest fall. After two losses, the Golden Tornado was swept all the way to the No. 9 spot from No. 2 the previous week.

The girls side didn’t have as many dramatic changes. Two losses dropped Southmoreland out of the Trib 10 as undefeated Penn-Trafford took its place in this week’s rankings.

Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.
