Two-time reigning ILH champion Maryknoll, the No. 1-ranked team in the state in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Top 10, is the top overall seed in the Snapple/HHSAA Boys Basketball State Championships beginning on Monday.
The Spartans (13-1) won both the ILH regular season and postseason tournament and have advanced to the state tournament in consecutive years for just the second time since they made it five in a row from 1984-88.
OIA champion Moanalua is seeded second after making the semifinals last year as an unseeded team. Na Menehune beat OIA champion Kalaheo in the quarterfinals to reach the final four.
MIL champion Lahainaluna is the third seed again and BIIF champion Waiakea was given the fourth seed.
