Wednesday sports schedule



What to watch

Boys basketball

Berkeley Prep (13-2) at Brooks DeBartolo (10-3), 7:30

The Buccaneers’ two losses this season have been by a combined 10 points to a pair of quality programs, Orlando Evans and Tampa Catholic. The Phoenix, meanwhile, have won five of six, the lone loss coming against Tampa SLAM in overtime during that span. 

Girls basketball

Riverview (11-4) at Steinbrenner (15-6), 6:30

The Sharks have been on a roll, winning five of their last six, the only by two points to Sarasota Riverview. The Warriors also have plenty of momentum with five of their last six wins decided by double digits.

Girls soccer

Palm Harbor University (10-2) at River Ridge (12-1-2), 6

The Royal Knights are averaging nearly five goals per game. But they likely will have a tough time scoring against a Hurricanes’ defense that posted four straight shutouts and has allowed just seven goals all season. 

Land O’ Lakes (11-2-1) at Academy of the Holy Names (8-3), 7

Both teams are ranked among the top five in the state in their respective classifications by MaxPreps (the Gators are No. 2 in 5A and the Jaguars are No. 5 in 3A).

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.  .
