The second seeded Trojans will be looking for a spot in the section final when they face the third seeded Robbinsdale Armstrong Falcons at 8 p.m. tonight. Top seeded Hopkins and fourth seeded Minneapolis North will play in the first semifinal game at 6:30 p.m.

The Trojans split a pair of Classic Lake Conference games against the Falcons this year, winning 76-58 on Feb. 13 and losing 80-76 on March 3. The Trojans come into tonight's game with a 20-6 record, while the Falcons sit at 13-14.
