GAMES TO WATCH

The Baltimore Sun

GIRLS BASKETBALL

No. 3 City @ No. 1 St. Frances

WHEN: Friday, 5:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK: In its final game before heading into the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference tournament, St. Frances will try to hold off an equally athletic Knights team. Both are balanced as well as quick and speedy in the backcourt, but the Panthers play better team defense and a more cohesive offense. St. Frances' more disciplined play should make the difference.

THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK: St. Frances

Girls basketball

No. 7 Digital Harbor @ No. 2 Western

WHEN: Tuesday, 5:15 p.m.

OUTLOOK: Baltimore City action gets down to the nitty-gritty with the top three teams scheduled to play one another in the next couple of weeks. Digital Harbor, a fast riser in the past two years, takes on the perennially tough Doves. Look for defense and rebounding to make a big difference. The Rams will have to keep G Akeema Richards from driving, and the Doves need to keep 6-foot F Asia Logan off the boards.

THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK:

Western

Boys basketball

No. 7 Digital Harbor @ No. 1 Lake Clifton

WHEN: Tuesday, 5:15 p.m.

OUTLOOK: High-powered Lake Clifton has rolled through its schedule, winning 15 straight by an average of more than 30 points heading into this week. The Lakers, however, should be tested by the Rams, who have defeated Milford Mill and Edmondson. Junior Tavon Usher was averaging 19 points during his past three games to lead Digital Harbor, heading into Tuesday's play.

THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK:

Lake Clifton
