St. Mark’s have been idle since a last-second loss to Upper Darby (Pa.) in the Dragon Winter Classic before Christmas.

Ber’Nyah Mayo and Julie McCarron lead the St. Elizabeth attack, but the Vikings will need to concentrate on defense against the speedy Pandas, who feature the impressive inside tandem of Michelle Kozicki and Paige Kenton. The St. E Center, which has hosted plenty of exciting basketball in the past two weeks, gets another marquee event.
