There were very few changes from the first to the second edition of the weekly Trib HSSN boys basketball state rankings.

Only two teams fell out of the Top 5 in their respective classifications and both were from District 6.

Penn Cambria dropped out in 4A and Conemaugh Valley in A. They were replaced by Neumann-Goretti and Imani Christian.

While Class 5A stayed the same, there was some “inner” shuffling in 6A, 3A and 2A, including a couple of changes at No. 1.

Reading lost to Devon Prep, dropping the Red Knights to No. 2 in 6A as Scranton takes over the top spot.

There was a rarity in 3A. Teams usually don’t fall in the rankings unless they lose. However, despite a 7-0 record, Brookville lost its seat at the top of the hill. Devon Prep’s win over 6A top-ranked Reading propels the Tide to No. 1 in 3A.
