Saint Louis collected all 10 first-place votes to remain an undisputed No. 1 in the Star-Advertiser Boys Basketball Top 10 on Monday.

The Crusaders (17-2 overall) enter the Heide & Cook/HHSAA State Championships this week as the top seed.

Mililani won the OIA title last week and zoomed three notches higher to No. 3. The Trojans are 14-1 overall, with the only blemish a 63-61 overtime loss to Saint Louis in preseason.


The top seed in the D-II state championships, Kohala, remained at No. 10.

Kamehameha and Punahou did not qualify for the state tourney, but the Warriors climbed over the Buffanblu after EJ Kapihe’s 3-point bomb from nearly halfcourt gave them a 50-48 win during the ILH playoffs last week. Kamehameha finished at No. 7 and Punahou at No. 8.

    Q it maybe that you will see that happening; Dr. David Keanu Sai and the Royal Commission of Inquiry are gathering facts about the commission of war crimes in the occupied territory of the Hawaiian Kingdom and will submit their report to all contracting states of the Geneva and Hague Conventions and the International Red Cross for possible further action, which may include prosecution where appropriate. If you have detailed information that would assist the Commission in their work, reach Dr. Sai at anu@hawaii.edu
