The sports schedule is a bit light early in the week, but Friday and Saturday bring plenty of action with them. On the basketball court, Salesianum and St. Mark’s get together for the first time this season, while St. Elizabeth’s girls visit Ursuline in what usually is a close contest.

Basketball

Friday

Key at Ss. Peter and Paul, 5:30 p.m.

St. Thomas More (4-4) at Worcester Prep, 6:30 p.m.

Salesianum (6-3) at St. Mark’s (7-2), 7:30 p.m. The longtime rivals renew acquaintances for the first time this season. The Sals’ balanced scoring attack, led by Jack Brown and Darnell Vaughan, will test the stingy Spartans defense. St. Mark’s offense is paced by Victor Marcelo and Eric Ludman. When these teams last met 11 months ago, they needed five overtimes to decide a winner.

Archmere (8-2) at Tower Hill (5-2), 1:30 p.m. The Auks continue their impressive season in the refurbished Carpenter Fieldhouse on the Tower Hill campus. Darren DiRenzo has been Archmere’s top scorer this season, while the Hillers have seen a number of players step up this season, including sophomore Donovan Mack.

These traditional Catholic Conference powers met in December at the Diamond State Classic, with the Vikings winning in three overtimes. Ber’Nyah Ward-Mayo leads the potent Vikings, and Kay Wulah has given Ursuline a nice inside scoring option.
