It was a rough week for elite boys basketball teams in District 7.

New Castle, Chartiers Valley, Lincoln Park and Bishop Canevin were all knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten. In fact, the Red Hurricane and Colts lost twice to drop out of the top 5.

The Crusaders’ first loss in Class 2A dropped them from the top spot, opening the door for District 12 power Constitution.

St. Joe’s Prep in Class 6A and Radnor in 5A are the latest two teams to be recognized in the weekly Trib HSSN boys basketball state rankings.

Besides the change at 2A, the other No. 1 teams remain on top. Roman Catholic (6A), Imhotep Institute Charter (5A), Neumann-Goretti (4A), Devon Prep (3A) and Linville Hill Christian (A) are all sitting nicely at the midway point of the regular season.
