The Tigers meet Fridley Thursday, March 12, at St. Michael-Albertville High School with a state-tournament berth on the line. The opening tap is at 7 p.m.

Delano defeated Rocori 65-46 in the early game of the semifinal round. Fridley followed with a not-so-easy 74-72 win over Monticello in the late game.

Delano (24-4) and Fridley (14-13) have not yet met this season.

The Tigers are playing for their fourth appearance in the state tournament, and third under coach Terry Techam.

Delano won the Class 3A championship in 2018. The Tigers also went in 2013 under Techam. Before that, Jerry Litfin took the Tigers to the 1993 tournament.
