‘Iolani Classic: No spectators allowed

Officials have reiterated that the general public will not be allowed to attend the ‘Iolani Classic boys tournament, which begins on Saturday.

Due to high demand and the small size of the gym at ‘Iolani, COVID-19 safety precautions remain at the forefront for the Classic. The annual boys basketball event it its 38th year as one of the premier high school tourneys in the nation.

Games will be streamed live on theSUVtv.com. The semifinals and final will be streamed on NBCSN and Peacock.

Demand is especially high this year with the presence of powerhouse Sierra Canyon (Calif.), which includes high-flying Bronny James, son of NBA icon LeBron James.

    What officials are making this call?
    You can have a 9K filled football stadium with people sitting right next to each other, you can have full luaus of tourists, but you can’t have a small basketball crowd @ Iolani?
    RIDICULOUS: Just cancel the basketball season already!!
