Also making it to the semi-final round is Minneapolis's DeLaSalle. Richfield lost to DeLaSalle in the final tournament game last season. *DeLaSalle's plays Monticello at 2 p.m. Thursday at Target Center.
The winners of the semifinal games will advance to the championship game at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 16 at Target Center.
