Whether you like to hit the gym to see basketball or wrestling, or if you prefer your water sports in a pool or on ice, this is a busy week that offers something for everyone.

Basketball

Tuesday

Saint Mark’s (10-2) at Dickinson (3-9), 3:30 p.m.

St. Thomas More (0-13) at Gunston, 4 p.m.

St. Elizabeth (6-4) at Caravel (6-6), 7:15 p.m. The Vikings travel to Bear for a meeting between two teams that are annually among the state’s best. This season, St. Elizabeth has the veteran presence, while the Buccaneers have reloaded with a bunch of youngsters. Caravel ended the Vikings’ season last year in the state semifinal round.

Tatnall (9-3) at Padua (6-5), 7:15 p.m. The Pandas are home for another matchup with a quality opponent. The Hornets are young, but they have talented players inside and out. The Pandas are coming off a win over perennial contender Caravel and want to keep the good vibes going. It’s the first of two challenges for the Pandas this week.

Thursday

Padua at Dover (9-3), 5:30 p.m.

Ursuline (5-7) at Woodbridge (9-2), 5:45 p.m. The Raiders take their two-game winning streak to Sussex County to meet the Blue Raiders, who are on top of the Henlopen South Conference. Woodbridge has a few players that will receive all-state consideration, and they have bumped up their schedule this season. It should be a good one in Greenwood.

Newark Charter (8-3) at St. Elizabeth (9-1), 7:15 p.m. St. Elizabeth plays the first of two home games that will put their record to the test. Newark Charter is athletic and prefers an up-and-down game, so the Vikings will see where their defense stands.
