1. Hollidaysburg 6-4
The Golden Tigers cruised to a very easy win over single-A St. Joseph's Academy 76-22 in their lone game last week. Hollidaysburg will be put to the test this week as they host Williamsport and Gettysburg, while fitting a road game at Altoona in between the two. All three opponents are AAAA teams and should be a good challenge for the Golden Tigers
2. Somerset 5-2
Somerset leapfrogs Johnstown in the rankings by virtue of beating the Trojans on their home floor. They have a busy week on the horizon with four games in six days. Luckily for the Golden Eagles, all four games will be played on their home floor. The games with Bishop Guilfoyle and Shanksville should be the most challenging.
3. Johnstown 9-3
The Trojans drop in the rankings after that loss to Somerset, but they are still off to a good start this season. They make the long trip down to Bedford and host Westmont this week.
1. Blairsville 9-2
The Bobcats are off to an excellent start this season and handled Marion Center with no problems last week. This week could be a totally different story as it will be much more difficult with three road games including a showdown with Homer-Center tonight at the Homer Dome.
2. Tyrone 9-1
Tyrone is currently riding a modest four game winning streak. The Golden Eagles have two monster games this week at Penns Valley and home against Mt. Union.
3. West Branch 10-1
The Warriors are on a solid five game winning streak and should be able to keep it rolling with games against Glendale and Juniata Valley this week.
4. Mt. Union 9-1
Mt. Union moved to 9-1 this week after two wins, including a one point nailbiter over Bellwood-Antis. They have road games at Moshannon Valley, Williamsburg, and Tyrone.
5. Penns Valley 8-2
Penns Valley drops a bit with a loss to Huntingdon, but the Rams are still a very good basketball team. The only game on the slate this week is when they host #2 Tyrone on Wednesday.
1. Chestnut Ridge 6-3
Chesnut Ridge has lost three of four, but nobody is really emerging in the D5AA race. They have home games with Everett and Tussey Mountain, and take a short trip to take on Bedford mid-week. The Lions could really assert themselves as the team to beat with a big week here.
2. Berlin-Brothersvalley 6-3
Berlin dropped two games last week to fall to 6-3. They take on Turkeyfoot Valley at home and travel to Bishop McCort on Saturday.
3. Tussey Mountain 4-5
The Titans handled their archrivals, Northern Bedford last week to improve to 4-5. They have some tough games this week highlighted by Southern Fulton and at Chestnut Ridge.
1. Bishop Carroll 11-1
The Huskies played two rivalry games last week, and won them both handily. They have a home game with Cambria Heights and a road game at Forest Hills this week, both games Carroll will be heavy favorites.
2. Homer-Center 9-1
The Wildcats beat Saltsburg in their lone game last week, but it was enough to slide them into the second spot. Homer has three home games this week with the big one coming tonight against Blairsville.
3. Bishop Guilfoyle 5-3
Guilfoyle started the week out strong with wins over Penn Cambria and Bellwood, but dropped with the loss to Carroll. I still thing this team is not a finished product, and they will get better. They head to Forest Hills, Somerset, and Central Cambria this week.
4. Portage 7-2
Portage has been a bit of a surprise this season, but they have played steady basketball all year long. They have road games at Harmony and Ferndale and they also host Conemaugh Valley.
5. Saltsburg 7-4
Quietly, Saltsburg is having a nice season. They head to Ligonier this week before hosting Northern Cambria and United.
1. Shaksville-Stonycreek 8-0
Shanksville is off to a great start and they have a huge showdown with Somerset on Saturday. It's hard to think they can take down a good AAA team like that, but don't count them out in that game.
2. Southern Fulton 10-1
The Indians picked up two wins last week and they sit with an impressive 10-1 record at the midway point of the season. They go to Tussey Mountain and welcome McConnellsburg this week.
3. McConnellsburg 8-0
The Spartans picked up two easy wins last week to improve to 8-0. The travel to Southern Fulton on Wednesday for a big game.
