Wednesday sports schedule



What to watch

Boys basketball

Tampa Catholic (7-2) at Berkeley Prep (11-1), 7

With both teams now in different classifications (the Crusaders in 4A; the Buccaneers in 3A), the annual meeting between rivals is more for bragging rights. Still, it is a premier matchup. After all, the two are each ranked sixth in the state in their respective classifications by MaxPreps. 

Boys soccer

East Lake (5-2-1) at Palm Harbor University (6-2-1), 8

Expect a tight, low-scoring match between these rivals. Both teams have allowed a combined 16 goals all season. 

Girls soccer

Durant (8-2-1) at Newsome (9-1), 6

This is the first meeting of the season between the rivals. Both teams were in the Tampa Bay Invitational but did not play against each other. 

East Lake (8-0-2) at Palm Harbor University (6-2), 6

The matchup to watch is the Eagles’ offense, which is averaging four goals per match, going up against a stingy Hurricanes’ defense that has allowed seven goals all season.

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.  .
