The top seeds in the OIA Red girls basketball playoffs are a pair of undefeated teams in Mililani (10-0) out of the West and Roosevelt (11-0) from the East.


After that, it gets a little crazy.

The Trojans had no problem finishing up the season with a 62-11 win over winless Waialua, which is the odd team out from the West in the OIA White playoffs.

Roosevelt, ranked No. 2 in the state behind Konawaena, had to work a little harder on Thursday night in a 61-43 win over Kaiser.

The loss dropped the Cougars (9-2) into a three-way tie for second place with Kailua and Farrington. With the head-to-head records knotted up at 1-1 between the three, they will go to a coin flip to determine who receives the opening-round bye.

Moanalua (7-4) is the fifth seed out of the East with Kahuku getting the last spot over Kalani. Both teams finished 5-6 but the Red Raiders are in because of a 76-60 win over the Falcons on Dec. 23.


Like in the East, a coin flip will determine the No. 2 seed as Nanakuli, Radford and Leilehua all finished at 8-2.

Campbell (6-4) gets the fifth seed after a 54-53 win over Aiea and Waianae (5-5) is the sixth seed with Kapolei out.

In the OIA White playoffs, Kaimuki (4-7) holds the tiebreaker over Castle (4-7) due to a 43-38 win on Jan. 8 and therefore, will get the top seed out of the East. The Knights are the No. 2 seed and McKinley (2-9) gets the third seed with Kalaheo and Anuenue left out.

Pearl City (3-7) gets the tiebreaker over Aiea due to a 52-40 win over Na Alii on Jan. 8. Aiea had a chance to jump past the Chargers on Thursday, but lost by a point to the Sabers.

Waipahu (1-9) gets the third seed with the Bulldogs out.

    Per OIA guidelines for tiebreaker: 1. Winner of Tied Schools: If there are multiple ties, resolve the standing among tied schools that have played each other.
    Example:
    (1) KAILUA/KAHUKU TIED – WINNER OF TWO (Head to head)

    (2) KAILUA/KAHUKU/CASTLE TIED – KAILUA BEAT CASTLE AND KAHUKU; KAHUKU BEAT CASTLE AND LOST TO KAILUA; CASTLE LOST TO KAILUA AND KAHUKU.
    1ST KAILUA – 2 WINS (Between these three teams tied)
    2ND KAHUKU – 1 WIN
    3RD CASTLE – 0 WINS

    4. Point Total: Add up won/lost/tied standing points of all teams beaten – highest total best.
    Example: KAILUA, KALAHEO, KAHUKU 3 WINS, 7 LOSSES. KAILUA BEAT KAHUKU, KAHUKU BEAT KALAHEO, KALAHEO BEAT KAILUA. (Between these three teams)

    KAILUA BEAT: KAHUKU BEAT: KALAHEO BEAT:
    KAHUKU– 3-7 3 PTS KALAHEO- 3-7 3 PTS KAILUA- 3-7 3 PTS
    McKINLEY- 2-8 2 PTS McKINLEY- 2-8 2 PTS McKINLEY- 2-8 2 PTS
    KAISER- 4-6 4 PTS KALANI- 3-7 3 PTS KALANI- 3-7 3 PTS
    9 PTS 1ST (Between these three teams) 8 PTS 2ND (Kahuku beat Kalaheo head to head) 8 PTS 3RD (Kahuku beat Kalaheo head to head)

    Although Kahuku and Kalaheo have same point totals, after you break the three way tie, you revert back to the 1st tie breaker which is head to head.

    5. Coin toss: Flip a coin with “odd man” getting highest ranking: Then, go back to beginning of process with remaining multiple tie teams.
    Example: AIEA, ROOSEVELT, WAIPAHU FLIP A COIN ROOSEVELT WAS “ODD MAN”. AIEA BEAT WAIPAHU REGULAR SEASON.
    1ST – ROOSEVELT
    2ND – AIEA
    3RD – WAIPAHU

    Six teams in the ballast with a chance to beat the odds on a coin toss to determine odd team in, with the remaining two tied teams seed decided on head to head play. Why not high card draw or roll of the dice or small straw wins or even rock paper scissors? Playoff is not an option so here is my opinion. With three teams tied, their head to head scores against the other two teams total points tallied will determine higher seed. If two are tied, go to the head to head game. If three are tied go to the total season games total points difference in games won. Highest tally will determine seeds. If tied, go head to head.
