Section playoffs are heating up. Here are a few of the top spots to be over the next few nights to take in the action.
• As usual, the big show is the Class 2A, Section 2 and Section 6 doubleheader at Mariucci Arena. The finals are set, and as is often the case, the games are worthy of the state tournament. In Section 2, No. 1 seed and defending state champion Edina takes on No. 2 seed Burnsville; after that in Section 6, it’s top-seeded Eden Prairie vs. No. 2 seed Wayzata.
• If you like your doubleheaders a little less glitzy but just as potentially entertaining, check out the Class 2A, Section 4 semifinals between Hill-Murray and Roseville (6 p.m.) followed by Stillwater vs. White Bear Lake at Warner Coliseum on the State Fairgrounds.
• A south metro tussle between two very good teams highlights Thursday. No. 1 seed Eagan takes on No. 2 seed Apple Valley in the Class 2A, Section 3 final (7 p.m., State Fairgrounds Coliseum).
• Closer to the heart of Minneapolis is the Class 1A, Section 2 final (7:30 p.m., Parade Ice Garden).
• The Coliseum is again the place to be for a doubleheader that rarely disappoints: The Class 2A, Section 5 final (6 p.m.) followed by the 2A, Section 4 final.
