Five teams from the Trib 10 took a tumble this past week, but it was not enough to drop them out of the weekly power rankings.

Tumultuous Tuesday in WPIAL boys hoops saw top-ranked New Castle and No. 4 Chartiers Valley fall to unranked opponents, Central Catholic and Moon.

The other three teams — Butler boys and Mt. Lebanon and Penn-Trafford girls — lost to ranked opponents, thus their fall in the rankings was not very drastic, one spot each.

Class 4A top-ranked Lincoln Park replaces New Castle at the top of the boys hoops power rankings while Norwin remains No. 1 in girls basketball.

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