Let the fun begin. Five rounds will produce six champions in three weeks in the Pennsylvania boys basketball version of March Madness.

The state playoffs tip off this weekend with a lot of changes and head-to-head battles among teams in the Trib HSSN state rankings coming up in the next few weeks.

Heading into the PIAA postseason, the latest rankings saw five teams bounced from the top five and two teams lose their spots at the top of the heap.

Of the six No. 1 teams, half of them are from District 12, made up of public and private schools in and around Philadelphia.

There are now four WPIAL champs and one runner-up among the best in the state, with Mars still holding at No. 1 in Class 5A.
