WMBD/WYTZZ-TV - PEORIA, Ill. -- It's super Tuesday of a different sort in central Illinois.

Four area prep basketball teams will play for berths in this weekend's small school state tournament.

Fieldcrest travels to Northern Illinois University to meet Rockford Lutheran in the Class 2A DeKalb super-sectional. Also in 2A, U-High meets Teutopolis in the Springfield super-sectional.

Fieldcrest has never been to state. U-High is looking for its first trip to Carver Arena since 1999.

In class 1A, unbeaten and top-ranked Brimfield faces Carrolton in the Jacksonville super-sectional. And Illini Central will play Fisher in the Normal super-sectional.

Illini Central has never been to state while Brimfield is in search of its first state bid since 1979.
