Boca Ciega at St. Petersburg

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. tonight.

THE SKINNY: For the first time this season, Clearwater trailed entering the fourth against a county team when Bogie pushed it to the limit Wednesday. The Pirates have been tough since Marquel Brooks returned and with Enoris Sly have a good inside-outside punch. The Green Devils, with just one district loss, can strengthen their hold on first (shared with Gibbs) and show 5A-10 it's still the team to beat.

Dixie Hollins at Gibbs

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

THE SKINNY: The Rebels have been awful the past two seasons but now look like a sleeper. Ron Williams (15 points a game last season) is eligible again, and the Rebels have been reborn since grades came out. They clobbered Seminole and Wednesday lost by six to St. Petersburg. Are they for real? Or does Gibbs, which hasn't lost since the Hooters Tournament, pad a 7-1 district and 3-0 conference record?

Largo at Boca Ciega

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

THE SKINNY: With Fred Marshall back in the fold, the Packers could return to their holiday tournament form, when they won eight in a row and two titles. This is a nondistrict contest, but with two teams that like to run, it should be worth watching.
