Like sands in the hourglass, so go the dwindling days of the regular season.

With only a couple of days left in section play, the elite teams around the WPIAL are honing their games and flexing their power as the postseason nears.

Once again, there was not a lot of movement in the weekly Trib 10 rankings, with one team each in boys and girls hoops losing their grip on a spot.

Penn Hills bumps Belle Vernon on the boys side while Indiana replaces Moon in the girls rankings.

At No. 1, North Hills once again remains perfect in the boys rankings while Chartiers Valley enjoys the view from the top for a second straight week in the girls rankings.

Here are the latest power rankings. Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking.
