The No. 1 St. Frances girls basketball team will face defending Class 3A state champion Frederick in the marquee game of the second annual Power Move Winter Showcase on Saturday at Oakland Mills High School.
The nine-game event was snowed out last season and games were made up later, but there’s no snow in the forecast for Saturday as the Power Move Showcase moves from Poly to Oakland Mills.
