Commerce Township – Walled Lake Central has never been to a state semifinal and few expect that to change anytime soon.

Central (20-5) will take on a team from one of the state’s top programs, Saginaw Arthur Hill (22-3), in a Class A quarterfinal on Tuesday at Grand Blanc at 7 p.m.

All quarterfinal winners advance to the Breslin Center in East Lansing. The Class C and D semifinals will be played on Thursday. Class A and B will be held on Friday with the four finals on Saturday.

Should Central win it would represent one of the biggest upsets in this season’s tournament in any class.

The Vikings weren’t picked to get out of their district. Most favored either Walled Lake Western
