No. 2 St. Frances vs. Riverdale Baptist Friday, 3:30 p.m., Hill Field House, Morgan State
This will be a crucial game for the Panthers after losing to Riverdale Baptist, 55-43, at the IAABO Tournament and falling to No. 1 Seton Keough, 62-40, on Monday. Center Kandice Green is back from an ankle sprain, and her inside presence should help. The Panthers also will need good guard play to counter a tough matchup in the Crusaders' Ataira Franklin. THE SUN'S PICK: ST. FRANCES
No. 4 Randallstown vs. Douglass Friday, 6:30 p.m., Hill Field House, Morgan State
The intense rivalry between the Rams and the Ducks gets renewed Friday at the Basketball Academy. Randallstown senior point guard Tione Womack will look to set the pace and feed forward Alex Jackson in the paint for easy baskets. Douglass will counter with versatile guard Omar Strong, who has a tendency to score in bunches.
THE SUN'S PICK: RANDALLSTOWN
