For the second straight week, the top girls basketball teams in the district continue to flex their collective muscles in showing off their true power.

There was zero movement as the 10 girls teams in last week’s power rankings were spotless this past week.

The boys teams could not say the same, as several tasted defeat and dropped down the Trib 10 ladder.

However, only one team fell out as Gateway dropped, opening the door for Baldwin to debut at No. 10.

Once again, everybody is looking up at Lincoln Park on the boys side and undefeated Oakland Catholic in the girls rankings.

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