Pete Smith Classic
One quarter is in the books and University High leads Waianae 17-8. The Junior Rainbows look solid and smart. Sure, there are just nine players on the roster, but that’s all they need. Ryan Hobus, their agile big man, isn’t doing all the work inside by himself. The Jr. ‘Bows are using a 2-2-1 press to get steals. Five turnovers by the Seariders led to a 13-1 UHS lead midway through the first quarter.
Waianae chipped away, sitting in a 2-3 zone. UHS got an NBA-distance 3, but is that one of those poison pills? UHS has stretched the lead to 28-15 on a fastbreak layup.
