Hillsborough: The week ahead

The week ahead

A look at the top prep events across the county:

Girls basketball, St. Pete Catholic (7-2) at Holy Names (10-3), 7:30 Wednesday: The first of two games against Class 3A, District 10 foe SPC will say a lot about the Jaguars' postseason prospects, especially against reigning Pinellas County player of the year Jerica Coley.

Boys basketball, Jesuit (9-6) at Tampa Catholic (13-2), 7:45 Friday: This annual grudge match between Tampa's private school archrivals typically draws a packed house. TC enters the week on a four-game win streak.

Girls soccer, Newsome (11-3-3) at Bloomingdale (6-4), 6 Friday: A big 6A-8 district matchup between two of the county's top programs. The Wolves are still fighting for the top seed in the district tournament

Girls basketball, Sickles (16-2) at Freedom (16-2), 6:30 Friday: This is a 5A-9 district game, and the Patriots have dominated local competition except for the Gryphons, who handed Freedom an eight-point loss last month. The Patriots have gotten better since.

Girls basketball, East Bay (10-8) at Newsome (8-7), 6:30 Friday: A big 6A-8 meeting that will have a lot of impact on seeding between middle-of-the-pack teams in one of the county's most competitive districts.

Girls basketball, Wharton at Spoto, 6:30 Friday: Two of the top up-and-coming teams meet in a nondistrict game. No longer just pretenders, the Wildcats and Spartans have the proven talent to be playing deep into the postseason.
