"We can't put our heads down," said Brobston. "We will need to have players step up. We've got a good core. All of our 12 players are seniors or juniors."
Lapel is looking straight at Shenandoah (8-12), a team it defeated Feb. 13 by 24 points.
"When we played them, they used a triangle and two against us and we really hadn't talked much about that then," said Howell. "But we've gone over it now and I think we will be better prepared to handle it if we see it again. We've had a good rivalry with Shenandoah. Over the last 21 games, they've won 11 and we've won 10."
But Howell likes the way his team is playing right now.
"We've played pretty well the last month," he said. "We've been consistent defensively. Offensively we've been a little inconsistent but I think every coach can say that."
Game times on Tuesday and again for Friday's semifinals are at 6 and 8 p.m.
