With the regular season winding down and district playoffs coming up, the latest HSSN boys basketball state rankings become a little more intriguing with the elite teams shuffling in and out.

Four teams exited the top 5, two in Class 5A. Monsignor Bonner/Archbishop Prendergast dropped out after spending most of the season ranked despite a late start to the season. Chartiers Valley also fell out a week after debuting.

Replacing them in 5A are unbeaten Northern York and once-beaten Pottsville.

South Allegheny in 3A and Conestoga Christian School also were bounced out while undefeated Wyoming Seminary (3A) and St. John Neumann Regional Academy (A) are the new pupils.

The only change at the top of a class was in 3A when Loyalsock Township leap-frogged Lancaster Catholic for No. 1.
