5:49 p.m. Consolation play is finally over for the day at the St .Francis Merv Lopes Classic. A 3-point shooting contest delayed the late-afternoon schedule. Semifinals begin in a few minutes.

Consolation: No. 9 Farrington 67, Chestermere (Canada) 50

Consolation: Mission Prep 71, No. 1 Kamehameha 70

Consolation: Kalaheo 45, No. 7 Kahuku 32

Note on the Kalaheo-Kahuku game: I caught the second half and both teams played their reserves heavily. It’s been a busy two weeks playing in tournaments with little practice time for a lot of teams, so coaches are going to get everything they can out of these games.

Amador Valley (Calif.) and No. 6 Kamehameha-Hawaii tip off real soon, followed by Science Hill (Tenn.) and host St. Francis
