With less than a month before district playoffs begin, the teams in the weekly Trib HSSN boys basketball state rankings are fine-tuning their game.

It was another week of very little movement with only two teams falling out of the Top 5, one in Class 4A, the other in A.

Archbishop Carroll lost twice and was replaced by North Catholic in 4A. Notre Dame-East Stroundsburg also tasted defeat two times with its spot taken by Linville Hill Christian.

There were other losses that weren’t as costly. Archbishop Wood fell after losing to Reading but kept a spot in the rankings after edging 5A top seed Archbishop Ryan.

Class 3A No. 1 Devon Prep and A top-ranked Nativity BVM also survived loses this week to good teams in higher classifications to remain on top in their respective class.

Also holding on to their No. 1 spot were Scranton (6A), Allentown Central Catholic (4A) and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (2A).
