With most of their players back for a second consecutive trip to the state tournament, Maple Grove didn't appear to have any first round jitters Wednesday when they faced Andover in the state class AAAA quarterfinals.
Maple Grove dominated the late minutes of the first half to build a 40-22 halftime lead, and they weren't threatened in the second half.
Things get much tougher Thursday night in the semifinals as Maple Grove, the number two seed, faces third seed Apple Valley.
The Crimson beat the Eagles 103-87 in late December.
