No. 13 Arundel @ Severna Park

Friday, 6:45 p.m. Outlook: It is exam week for public schools in Anne Arundel County, so this is the first game for the teams this week. The visiting Wildcats enter the game with a 10-2 record, 5-2 in the county league, including last week's 89-74 victory at Old Mill. The Falcons are coming off a 57-51 loss at Broadneck and are 7-6, 4-3. Arundel has a lot of talent and depth, with Jordan Benson, Julian Watson, Mandel Brown, Brandon Johnson-Farrell and Auraum Nuiriankh leading the way. The Falcons, according to coach Paul Pellicani, "have to find ways to finish," with the likes of the Bald brothers, 6-foot-8 Brad and 6-4 Brendan. Overall, Arundel is quicker, has a better transition game and more firepower. THE SUN'S PICK: Arundel

BOYS BASKETBALL No. 14 Old Mill at No. 11 Broadneck

Tuesday, 5 p.m. Outlook: The host Bruins (11-2, 7-0) are the only undefeated team in county league action going into Friday. The Patriots are 11-1, 6-1. The top two teams at season's end play in the county championship game at 7 p.m. Feb. 26 at North County's new gym. An Old Mill victory in this game would increase the chances of the same two teams playing in the final. The Patriots will have to light it up with sharpshooters Deonte Puller, Brandon Riley and Chris Day to win because they have no match for the rebounding of the Bruins' Kevin Hunt. Hunt averages 11.5 rebounds per game while scoring 14.5 points. The Patriots also have to contend with the shooting of J.J. Hicks (17.2 points per game) and Mike Atkins (14). Broadneck's man-to-man defense will give the Patriots shooters a lot of problems, as well. THE SUN'S PICK: Broadneck
