‘Iolani, Konawaena remain 1-2 in Girls Basketball Top 10

After sharing the No. 1 spot with Konawaena, ‘Iolani is an outright top team in the past five Star-Advertiser Girls Basketball Top 10 polls. Front, from left: Keiki McGee, Haylie-Anne Ohta, Paige Oh, Keely Kai, Abby Tanaka. Back: Kanoe Hanohano, Mele Sake, Jovi Lefotu, Callie Pieper, Jaety Mandaquit.

A relatively quiet week in prep hoops means ‘Iolani is still prominently atop the Star-Advertiser Girls Basketball Top 10.

The Raiders collected eight out of 11 first-place votes in Monday’s coaches and media tally. The Raiders will battle Kamehameha on Tuesday in the ILH regular-season opener for both teams.

Konawaena garnered three first-place votes. The Wildcats will host Honokaa on Tuesday. Maryknoll, which will visit Punahou on Tuesday, is No. 3.


Upstart Maui is 4-0 in MIL play and is seated at No. 4 again this week. Kamehameha rounds out the top five.

    I like Iolani. They are very talented. Mandaquit from the Big Isle is nice.
