Friday sports schedule

What to watch


Hudson (4-0) at Cypress Creek (4-1), 7

Both teams have offenses that put up some big numbers. The Cobras are averaging 10 runs per game while the Coyotes are averaging seven runs per game. 

Boys basketball state final

Class 3A (at Lakeland’s RP Funding Center)

Bishop McLaughlin (22-6) vs. Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian (16-7), 4:30

The Hurricanes have made history by becoming the first Pasco County school since Zephyrhills (1960, ‘62) to play for a state title in boys basketball. Bishop McLaughlin accomplished that in its playoff debut with a revamped roster fortified by transfers. To win it all, the Hurricanes will have to get past Fort Lauderdale Calvary Christian, which is ranked No. 1 in 3A and seventh overall in the state by MaxPreps. 


The Lady Canes Spring Classic, hosted by Palm Harbor University, starts today and ends Saturday. The two-day tournament, held at Clearwater’s Eddie C. Moore Complex, is one of the two in the area during the season. Fans will not be permitted to attend this year. See below for the schedule.
