    1. Why is Saint Francis playing at their home court?

    2. Why is the other bracket playing at Kaimuki?

    3. Why is the semi-finals being played at Saint Francis?

    4. Who made these bracket?

    Bottom line is looks like Saint Francis has the best chance to make it to the finals with home court advantage.

    Just hand Saint Francis the D2 trophy already. Again, D2 needs their own rankings. League play shouldve dropped them below number 3 by now.

    Agreed about St. Francis being able to play on their home court. No team should be able to play at home during any playoffs, unless your school is playing in the Championship game AND that school is hosting the championship round. That’s fine to be a host site, but if you are in the playoffs, sorry, you should not be playing at your home court.
