Thursday sports schedule

What to watch

Boys basketball

Boca Ciega (7-3) at Hollins (10-4), 7:30

This is a rematch from a game the Pirates won by four points two weeks ago. The Royals are off to their best start in years and a win would not only exact revenge but also give them much-needed confidence down the stretch. 

St. Petersburg (11-1) at Canterbury (11-6), 7:30

The host Crusaders are playing a challenging schedule to prepare for a possible playoff run. This is a tough test against one of the best teams in Pinellas County.  

Girls basketball

Mitchell (12-5) at Zephyrhills (15-6), 7:30

The host Bulldogs have won five straight, including the past four by 35 or more points. Though the Mustangs’ streak is not as impressive (4-2 in the last six games), they have played a considerably tougher schedule during that stretch. 

Girls soccer

Osceola (9-4-1) at St. Petersburg (5-4-1)

The Green Devils’ Rui Farias can win the 400th match of his coaching career if his team can knock off the Warriors.
