More on a crowded MIL D-I hoops chase at midseason

January 19, 2014 - Robert Collias
Baldwin coach Wayne Gushiken was happy with the Bears’ defense in their 61-46 win over Maui High on Saturday night. The visitors took advantage of the Sabers missing their starters at guard — B.J. Villon and <>Denzell Quines both missed the game with concussions and their return date is undetermined.

“We rely a lot on pressure defense, especially in the backcourt,” Gushiken said. “If our offense isn’t working then we have to step up our defense.”

The Bears forced 25 turnovers, eight in which came in the third quarter when they outscored Maui High 23-11. It was 27-27 at halftime.

Four of the five MIL D-I teams are still within two games of each other — they all entered Saturday night within a game.

Lahainaluna is the hottest team in the league with four straight wins, two of which have come in overtime and another by one point over the Bears.

The race is on and we will keep up with it all along the way.
