Dunedin Shootout

WHEN: Beginning 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

SKINNY: Lots of hoops for a very nice price of $4 for the day. SCHEDULE: 11:30 - Northeast vs. Oldsmar Christian; 1 p.m. - Seminole vs. Melbourne; 2:30 pm - St. Petersburg vs. Sarasota Riverview; 4 p.m. - Clearwater vs. Port Charlotte; 5:30 p.m. - Palm Harbor vs. Wharton; 7 p.m. - Dunedin vs. Tampa Catholic; 8:30 p.m. - Boca Ciega vs. Pendleton School. Most intriguing match-ups? How about Clearwater getting a stiff test from a good Port Charlotte team, and Oldsmar Christian trying its hand against a public school for the first time.

Admiral Farragut vs. Winter Haven

WHEN: 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Belleview High.

SKINNY: The Blue Devils, a Class 4A state semifinalist last season, are ranked No. 2 and come in undefeated. The Blue Jackets, a Class A state semifinalist last season, are ranked No. 3 in Class 2A and are winners of four straight. Admiral Farragut (9-2) isn't as dominant as last year, but they keep on winning. Tommy Lampley's two free throws with 3.9 seconds left sealed a 55-52 win over Tampa on Prep Tuesday, and the average margin of victory for the Blue Jackets in their past two games is 3.5 points.

Boca Ciega at Clearwater

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

SKINNY: Remember when this used to be the game? There probably are a few folks who haven't forgotten the past battles of this great rivalry, and this one could shape up as a winner. Bogie has Marquel Brooks back in the lineup, and Enoris Sly is a hot-shot shooter. But do the Pirates go deep enough to offset the Tornadoes, who are only getting better and better?
