This may not matter much to many, but year in and year out, the HHSAA picks teams to be ranked. And occasionally the higher rankings often get a first round bye. Year in and year out, the outer island teams, get ranked high. Why? To try and be equal? It should go to the deserving team. Again this year, Hilo ranked #1. Going home. Baldwin Ranked #4. Going Home. Watch for it again in basketball. It happens all the time.

@patrick why did the ILH teams have to declare and the OIA teams didn’t? i’m still trying to find the answer to that

bumbuchas November 3, 2016 at 11:38 am

what would be even more mind boggling is if Iolani wins the tournament! or if the 3 ILH teams wins all of the 3 divisions! and if they don’t win, well, they just gotta recruit harder in the next few years, after all, the state champion title is up for grabs!

@Lisa In the new Open Division tournament, two ILH teams will be represented. In the Division 1 tournament, one ILH team will be represented. Before the start of the season, the four D1 ILH teams (Saint Louis, Punahou, Kamehameha, Iolani) declared which tournament they will play in. Saint Louis, Punahou, and Kamehameha declared the Open Division. With only 2 spots available this means one team will not play in the tournament (in this case it’s Kamehameha). Iolani, the only D1 ILH team who declared Division 1, gets the automatic bid to the D1 tournament despite their 0-6 ILH record.

Can someone explain why I’olani is in the Division 1 State Tournament with an 0-6 ILH record?

FBfan October 31, 2016 at 1:21 pm

In the open division, they only rank the top 2 teams, the rest of the teams are not ranked, it allows HHSAA to move the other teams around and place them where they feel is better, or which would make them more $$$$. They should’ve gave Kapolei and Waianae a bye if they knew they were gonna put them.

Derek Tengan October 30, 2016 at 9:43 pm

Did the HHSAA say that the winner of the Kapolei vs Waianae game would get Punahou and the loser would get Farrington in the first round of the Open division? Why was that game scheduled? If it was used to determine the brackets,what was Kapolei thinking? Wouldn’t you want to play Farrington instead of Punahou in the first round?

Lani October 30, 2016 at 9:02 am

How does is the Division 1 selections made? Why is Iolani representing the ILH instead of Kamehameha who has better ILH record?

RAM FOR LIFE October 29, 2016 at 3:15 pm

I keep telling the dummies Nov. 12th games should not be automatic winners of a certain 2 games. it supposed to be if like:
If Hilo wins they play winner of Iolani/Moanalua
IF Leleihua wins they play winner of Campbell/Waiakea.
Mr. Chun-this will save your ass. Remember this in Open division playoffs.
Theres a number of ways statistically you can settle my “if” points.
Like, points scored, division record this year etc…
