Not much has changed in this week's PIAA boys' basketball rankings, which are compiled by The Patriot-News, as far as the YAIAA is concerned.

William Penn still sits 10th in Class AAAA, while soon-to-be league member Gettysburg has garnered honorable mention status in Class AAA. The Bearcats remain the league's only current member to break the top 10 in any classification. They also have not reached any higher than 10th.

By comparison, non-league opponents Harrisburg and J.P. McCaskey are third and fourth in the rankings. Williamsport, which beat William Penn in the Bearcats' season-opening tournament, is seventh.

Do you think William Penn deserves to be higher? It beat Harrisburg earlier this season but also lost at McCaskey.

Here's a look at this week's rankings:
