The inaugural Geremy Robinson Senior Basketball Classic is 2 minutes from tip-off. The girls play first, followed by the boys. Technically, they can’t call it ILH vs. OIA, but that’s how the teams are comprised. There’s going to be a slam dunk competition, plus 3-point shootouts. Might be an interesting afternoon/evening of roundball here at […]

Before tonight’s semifinals, a few notes and quotes. • Matthew Nuumanaia, the versatile 6-foot-5 senior at St. Francis, was a definite DNP last night for the top-seeded Saints in the Hawaiian Airlines/HHSAA D-II Boys Basketball State Championships.
