A look at the top events in Pinellas County:

Boys basketball, Boca Ciega (11-5) at Pinellas Park (8-5), 7:45 tonight: The Patriots are in the district title hunt after a huge win over Largo last week. The Pirates, meanwhile, are trying to get out of their funk against one of the county's top-tier teams.

Girls basketball, St. Petersburg (9-3) at Countryside (10-3), 7:45 tonight: Both teams are flying under the radar a bit, but each has postseason potential. Forward Kamika Idom leads a potent Green Devils offense.

Boys basketball, St. Petersburg (12-3) at Countryside (9-4), 7:45 Wednesday: The Green Devils are undefeated against county competition and are favored to grab one of the top two seeds in their district. The Cougars need a big game against one of the county's best teams to be included in the mix.

Girls basketball, St. Petersburg Catholic (7-3) at Holy Names (10-3), 7:30 Wednesday: Can the talented Jaguars stop SPC guard/scoring machine Jerica Coley? The better question: Can anyone?

Boys soccer, Hurricane Watch final at Palm Harbor U., 6:30 Friday: This year's tournament features Countryside, Lakewood, Mitchell and PHU. Defending champion East Lake, however, won't be around to defend its title.

Girls soccer, PCAC Championship, 7 Friday: Who will get to play in the county public school championship and its location are still being sorted out. Last year's game, won by Seminole in a penalty kick shootout over Palm Harbor University, was an instant classic.

Boys basketball, Pinellas Park (8-5) at Gibbs (10-5), 7:45 Friday: Two of the surprise teams in the county square off to see if they can continue their success in the second half of the season.

Boys basketball, Largo (13-3) at Boca Ciega (11-5), 7:45 Friday: The Packers attempt to bounce back after their first loss against county competition last week. The Pirates hope to avenge an earlier loss to Largo.

Wrestling, St. Petersburg City Meet, 10 Saturday: The tournament includes public and private schools within the St. Petersburg city limits. Northside Christian, which won Bay Conference last weekend, will likely battle Dixie Hollins for the team title.

Wrestling, Falcon Duals, 9:30 Saturday: This is the fifth year Dunedin has hosted the meet, which usually has at least one out-of-state team. This year it is Washington Township (N.J.). Other county teams include Palm Harbor U. and Countryside.
