El Paso-Gridley (29-1) will try and hand the Sabres (31-2) their first loss against a Class 2A all season.
"It's awesome being on this floor, it's a great environment," said Titans junior Codee Schlipf. "(Tonight) will be a great atmosphere to play in. We've gotta take it one at a time. But the big dream -- is a state championship."
