Tuesday sports schedule



What to watch

Boys soccer

Nature Coast (12-1-2) at Weeki Wachee (11-2), 7:30

The Sharks won the first meeting two weeks ago and are trying to sweep the season series before the district tournament. The Hornets, meanwhile, are looking to not only exact revenge but also gain some momentum. 

Wharton (8-3-2) at Strawberry Crest (8-1-2), 8

The Chargers put their undefeated record at home on the line when they face the Wildcats in a solid matchup between two teams capable of making playoff runs. 

Girls basketball

Lakewood (12-3) at Carrollwood Day (8-3), 6

The Spartans, known for playing a tough schedule, go on the road to face the defending Class 3A state champions. 

Newsome (10-4) at Riverview (11-4), 6:30

In the first meeting the Sharks overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to win in 48-44 in overtime. A regular season sweep would likely secure a top three spot in the Class 7A, District 8 standings for Riverview. 

Wesley Chapel (13-3) at Brooks DeBartolo (7-3), 6:30

Last week the Wildcats got past Academy of the Holy Names and now face another formidable Hillsborough County opponent in the Phoenix. 

Girls soccer

Wharton (8-2-1) at Strawberry Crest (10-1), 6

After a two-week layoff the Chargers return hoping to rebound after losing for the first time this season. Scoring will be difficult considering both teams have allowed just 15 goals combined this season. 

Wiregrass Ranch (9-3-2) at Sickles (12-2-1), 6

Both teams are ranked among the top 11 in the state in their respective classification by MaxPreps (the Bulls are No. 11 in 6A and the Gryphons are No. 10 in 7A).

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.  .
