The WPIAL sent seven teams to Hershey to play for a PIAA basketball championship, and three came home with gold.

Lincoln Park won the boys Class 4A state title while Class A produced two PIAA champions with Imani Christian boys and Union girls.

Thus, there was no change at the top in the weekly Trib 10 boys power rankings as the Leopards finished No. 1 while the Scotties claimed the top spot in the girls Trib 10.

Aliquippa and Deer Lakes boys, along with South Fayette and Blackhawk girls, finished strong seasons with state silver and Top 5 spots in the power rankings.
