Boys

1. Marian Catholic 21-3 (1)

The Meteors looked bad against Hillcrest, but will be ready tonight when they play District 215 rival T.F. South

The Sting have played a tough schedule and face a good Bishop McNamara team tonight. They have one of the best guard tandems in the state in Kamal Shasi and Mark Weems Jr.

The Spartans are rolling as the postseason approaches. Ashton Millender has been unstoppable.

 2. Bloom Township 16-6 (2)

Bria Gaies was expected to go over the 1,500-point mark Thursday. It can be an interesting postseason for the Blazing Trojans.
