The top girls basketball teams in the district have made a statement over the last month that they are more than ready for lengthy playoff runs.

For the first time since mid-January, there was a change in the girls Trib 10 as Aliquippa entered and North Catholic exited … for now.

The boys side of the HSSN power rankings had some teams shuffling up and down, but only one departure as Thomas Jefferson replaced Butler.

The top two on both sides remained the same with Oakland Catholic at No. 1 and Norwin at No. 2 for the girls while Lincoln Park and Imani Christian remained the top two WPIAL powers on the boys side.

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