North Suncoast: The week ahead

The week ahead

Some of the can't-miss events on the North Suncoast (all games 7:30 p.m.):


Boys basketball, Land O'Lakes at Wesley Chapel. The Gators and Wildcats, once dominant programs, clash in the opener for both. Can Land O'Lakes overcome the loss of several key players from last season's team? Does Wesley Chapel coach Doug Greseth have a better team than some believe?

Boys basketball, Pasco (0-0) at Hudson (0-1). The Pirates should have their full allotment of players now that football season is over. The Cobras are expected to have a good team after last year's playoff run.

Boys soccer, Mitchell (6-1-2) at Wesley Chapel (3-3-1). The Mustangs are looking for some payback after a stunning tie to Wesley Chapel last month. The Wildcats began the season going undefeated in four straight games.


Girls basketball, Nature Coast (5-1) at Wiregrass Ranch (5-1). The Bulls are coming off a 68-61 loss to St. Petersburg Catholic. The Sharks last lost 57-56 to Orlando Christian Prep.

Girls soccer, Tampa Prep at Mitchell. The Terrapins are perennially one of the bay area's top soccer programs.


Boys basketball, Mitchell (1-1) at Ridgewood (1-1). The Rams' new perimeter-oriented offense is coming off a 78-48 loss to Sickles, which shellacked Wiregrass Ranch by 32. The Mustangs are coming off a 60-43 loss to Orlando Edgewater.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    BALTIMORE — Chris Archer had another bad game Sunday.

    Chris Archer is sputtering to the finish line, his rough start on Sunday his fourth in his past five in which he hasn’t gotten past four innings.
  4. High school senior Chasten Whitfield inspires young anglers


    MADEIRA BEACH — The kids lined up single file, snow cones in hand, a procession of sweaty, excited grade schoolers watching Chasten Whitfield throw a cast net.

  5. Wreck helps Kyle Busch take control of Monster Cup's ISM 300

    Auto racing

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of the season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
