It was a great STATE Tournament, hate Maryknoll lost. Want you guys to know Joshua Burnett had a great State Tournament.
Avg 27 points, 12 reb, 2.5 stl, 1 ast, 1 blk.
He shot 60% from 2pt, 41 % from 3pt and 74 from the ft line.
All while being doubled team.

I love it that Maryknoll lost, Josh had a horrible tournament fouling out in a critical game. Typical dad only cares about stats. The poor kid will NEVER EVER NEVER win a championship, THEY BLEW IT TWICE…maybe because of his selfish play and over bearing dad

Jared Christenot February 26, 2014 at 8:27 am

Great stats, too bad that Timothy BURNETT had to point them out. I saw a player who imploded on Friday in the Semifinals with 9 TOs and really bad attitude. Hard for Maryknoll to push through adversity when you have no leadership, here’s to STATS!

kupaa harrison is one of the best players and not on squad… seems to be a lot of politics… this is stupid

No one cares February 27, 2014 at 12:31 pm

Josh Burnett had a solid tournament. Too bad no one except for his dad will remember that. Everyone will remember his horrible character along with Maryknolls fans (which I presume to be their parents). Maryknoll from their administration down are terrible representatives of the ILH and schools who are ‘suppose to’ pride itself on values.

I see a father who is proud of his son’s basketball skills and who dedicated a lot of time in making his son better at a sport they both love. Over bearing? Better than a timid father (there’s a lot of them out there) who relies heavily on coaches at every level rather than taking an active part in teaching his son (or daughter) how to play. Boss & Jared are clueless.
That said, Farrington was the better team to begin with. Maryknoll, after playing two consecutive nights, ran into a primed Governor team. And from the beginning of the season, Maryknoll relied so much on Burnett and Gilmore because that’s pretty much all they had. Ogata played great at times, but this Maryknoll team did well for the players they had. Credit Kelly Grant for bringing out the best in his players. Farrington came into State firing after their OIA run.
Don’t know if Burnett is headed to a D I school. But to all his critics: where is your kid going?

Wet….. This is a senior classic and only seniors were chosen… Kupaa is a great player who will def be in this game next year…. Hats off to all players!!! What an amazing season of basketball!!!

Voice of Reason2 March 14, 2014 at 8:45 am

Ditto on Voice of Reason1….I can appreciate that as well. “Being a big part of helping him succeed and be involved!”…as they grow up quickly and are off into the world.

Question: Why aren’t neighbor island Seniors not invited or voted in?
There’s a kid on the Big Island (BIFF) that recently won the League MVP “Player of the Year” in DI (Jalen Carvalho) as well as 1st team AllState (coming out soon)…wouldn’t he be considered or atleast get an invitation?

Maui’s got some solid players as well coming out of Baldwin….and don’t sleep on Kauai!…there’s athletes all over the state!

Make it a great day and good luck to all those chosen to participate!

WET – This is a seniors-only game, which is why Kupaa was not involved.

Paul Honda March 19, 2014 at 11:09 am

Voice of Reason2 – Geremy Robinson is considering neighbor-island players for next year’s event.

Steve Lockhart March 29, 2014 at 1:15 pm

I was going to mention why that kid Kaleb Gilmore wasn’t in the classic but forgot he was a junior. By far the most talented and best player here in Hawaii that’s if you know the game of basketball. Watch a couple of Maryknoll games and thought Burnett was a good talent but needed work. Hate to say this because I like watching Kaleb play but he should take his talent to the mainland his senior year. Want improve playing against 5’8 Asian kids…. UH should be knocking on his door
