O’Bryant at Boston English, 4 p.m. Tuesday

Even though O’Bryant is undefeated in city league play, Boston English came the closest to beating them this season during a 44-38 contest at O’Bryant on Jan. 8.

English’s gymnasium is also one of the most difficult to play in in the city league and one that O’Bryant has struggled playing in during previous meetings between the two squads.

English is fighting for the second place in the Boston City League South division behind O’Bryant. The Blue and Blue currently sit in third place behind New Mission, who they play on Feb. 13 on the road.

Latin Academy at West Roxbury, 4:30 p.m. Thursday

Latin Academy is down but not out of the city tournament.

Currently in third place in the North division behind Fenway and South Boston, the Dragons need to win all four of their remaining games to clinch a spot in cities, including a Feb. 12 game at South Boston.

The Knights defeated the Dragons 67-60 in the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 16.

New Mission at O’Bryant, 5:30 p.m. Thursday

This is not only a rematch of last year’s Boston City League championship game, it’s also a battle between the only two undefeated teams in city league play.

Last February Fenway beat the Tigers 57-34 to win its first ever city championship.

And these two teams are the favorites to play again for the city title on Feb. 21.
