Saint Louis is off to a 5-1 start in the extra-tough Interscholastic League of Honolulu and is the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s fourth No. 1 boys basketball team in the last four weeks.

The Crusaders received 10 first-place votes and moved up 10 spots to inch past last week’s No. 1 team — Kaiser. The Cougars (8-1 Oahu Interscholastic Association East) suffered 62-58 overtime loss to Roosevelt last week and fell to No. 2.

Two weeks ago, Punahou (2-4 ILH) was the No. 1 team and ‘Iolani (3-3) was at the top one week before that.


Kamehameha (4-2 ILH) rose one spot to No. 3.

In the girls Top 10, the order changed in just two places. New No. 7 Radford (10-0 OIA West) and new No. 8 ‘Iolani (4-6 ILH) switched spots, and Kaiser (8-2 OIA East) entered the poll for the first time.

The top 10 polls follow, with first-place votes in parentheses along with points in the poll and last-week’s rank.
