With a month to go before tournament time, these three may be worth checking out.

Brighton at South Boston, Wednesday:
After getting walloped against Fenway in a game for first place in the North division, South Boston will be looking to get back on track.

Brighton will have its work cut out with junior guard Elaina Wright-McCarthy back and healthy. However, the Tigers offense has been improving, putting up a season-high in points scored their last time out.

O’Bryant at Brighton, 3, Friday:
A rematch from Brighton’s season opener. Brighton will look to avenge the 59-8 loss and this time it’s in their territory.

The Tigers two wins this season have both come on their home court. If they hope to keep winning, they’ll have to find someway to score against O’Bryant’s league best defense.

Fenway at East Boston, 5 p.m., Friday:
East Boston continues its pursuit of its first win. What better way to get it than beating a first place Fenway team that happens to be on a 5-game win streak?

East Boston will need all the support they can get on their home floor in this one.
