The Class AAAA Quarterfinal matchup is a clash of Suburban East Conference rivals.

CDH beat Roseville in their first meeting of the season, a 67-45 result in the first conference game of the season.  However, Roseville closed that gap to just 1 in a rematch on February 6th.

The Raiders (19-7) advanced to State with a dominating 65-41 performance against Park Center in the Section Final.

Roseville's last appearance at the State Hoops tourney was a three-year run from 2005-2007.

The Raiders success has come thanks to offensive depth.  No player averaged more than Jayda Johnston's 12.7 points per game, but seven players averaged at least seven points in their run through the section playoffs.

The Class AAAA State Girls Basketball Quarterfinals will be live streamed on  The Semifinals and Finals at State will air live on 45TV.
