Jesuit (13-4-4, ranked No. 3 in Class 3A) plays Class 5A, No. 8-ranked Palm Harbor University on Saturday in a final tuneup for the district playoffs. Bauman said if his team makes it to the Feb. 4 district final, he is optimistic he will be present for what could be the Tigers' 19th title in 20 years.
