With 11 of the 12 district playoffs complete, the attention turns to the champion-only PIAA state brackets.

Select first-round games were scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday with the quarterfinals taking place this weekend.

Major changes to the Trib HSSN girls basketball state rankings took place in Class 3A and 2A with a combined seven teams out and seven new teams in.

The changes were minimal in the other four classifications.

Also, three top-ranked teams fell out of the elite five with season-ending losses in the district playoffs. They were all WPIAL teams: Trinity in 5A, North Catholic in 3A and Serra Catholic in 2A,

Taking over those top spots and joining North Allegheny in 6A, Archbishop Wood in 4A and Rochester in A are Chartiers Valley (5A), Camp Hill Trinity (3A) and Neshannock (2A).
