No. 2 St. Frances @No. 3 Calvert Hall

WHEN: Tonight, 7

OUTLOOK: The Panthers' high-powered offense meets the Cardinals' stingy defense in a rematch of the top two teams in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference. St. Frances won the first meeting last month, 66-61, with 6-7 senior Terrell Vinson finishing with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Calvert Hall, however, has won 14 straight, allowing an average of 45 points.

Mount St. Joseph is led by Karl Green (285 pounds), Danny Orem (145) and Frank Goodwin (119).

Girls basketball

No. 1 St. Frances @No. 4 Seton Keough

WHEN: Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK: The Panthers have not lost to a Baltimore-area team in more than a year, but the Gators were the last ones to beat them. Still, St. Frances had little trouble with the Gators in a 71-56 win Jan. 7. The Gators used their inside game effectively in the second half with 6-foot-4 Asya Bussie and 5-foot-11 Achiri Ade, but they struggled against the four Panthers guards, led by Shatyra Hawkes.
