Tuesday sports schedule



What to watch

Boys basketball

East Lake (8-0) at Clearwater (11-1), 7:30

This one likely will decide which team represents the North in the Pinellas County Athletic Conference championship game. Both teams are ranked among the top four in their respective classifications by MaxPreps (the Eagles are No. 1 in 6A; the Tornadoes are No. 4 in 7A).  

Tampa Catholic (7-1) at IMG Academy (7-0), 7

For the second straight season, the Crusaders have a game scheduled against IMG Academy, which competes annually for a national title. The Ascenders are currently ranked third nationally by MaxPreps. But the Crusaders will not be intimidated. Last season, Tampa Catholic took IMG to double overtime before losing 76-70. 

Boys soccer

Wharton (8-2) at Plant (5-2-1), 7

Both teams are near the top of the standings of their division in the Western Conference and are trying to secure a spot in the final four. 

Land O’ Lakes (5-1-1) at Sunlake (6-0-1), 7:30

This is the first — and only — regular season meeting between these two fierce Pasco County rivals. 

Northeast (9-1) at Lakewood (11-3), 8

The winner of this match will likely represent the South in the Pinellas County Athletic Conference match. 

Girls basketball

Wharton (10-2) at Plant (12-1), 6:30

This is a good test for the Wildcats to see how well they fare against a defending state finalist.

Dillon Mitchell transfers to Montverde Academy



Dillon Mitchell, a four-star recruit who helped Bishop McLaughlin reach the state final for the first time this past season, has transferred to boys basketball powerhouse Montverde Academy. 

Mitchell, a 6-foot-7 senior small forward, made the announcement Thursday night on his Twitter account. 

In 2017, Montverde was named the nation’s top basketball program of the decade by USA Today. Several current NBA players went there, including Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and R.J. Barrett. Two more notable alumni, Oklahoma’s Cade Cunningham and and FSU’s Scottie Barnes, are expected to be among the top five picks in this year’s NBA draft. 

The ability to mold such high-profile stars prompted Mitchell to make the move. 

“They have developed great players to be successful at the next level,” Mitchell said of Montverde. “The competition is awesome,and being able to play against the best even at practice will help me become better. I believe it’s a great move.”

This is Mitchell’s third school in as many years. 

During the 2019-20 season, Mitchell played at Sickles, averaging 12.4 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game with the Gryphons.

He left this past season to attend Bishop McLaughlin, where he teamed with another four-star prospect, Emanuel Sharp, to form a dynamic 1-2 scoring punch. Mitchell (featured photo above by Willie Kelly) finished the season averaging 17.6 points and 10.6 rebounds per game while leading the Hurricanes to the Class 3A state final. 

Mitchell is rated fourth in the state and 29th nationally in the Class of 2022 by ESPN. He has offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, FSU, Miami, Ohio State and Tennessee, among others.  .
