A look at Lahainaluna's No. 1 seed, from a few angles
February 2, 2014 - Robert Collias
It really couldn't have been any other way — the Lahainaluna High School girls basketball team is seeded No. 1 for the state tournament. They are 27-1 on the season, riding a 22-game winning streak, the only team that beat them (Kamehameha Kapalama) is not in the tournament, and they own wins over the Nos. 2 and 3 seeds.
Here is an email that landed in my in-box this morning:
Attached is the official bracket for the 38th Annual Hawaiian Airlines/Hawai'i High School Athletic Association Division I Girls Basketball State Championships set for Feb. 7-8 and Feb. 14-15.
As a reminder, this year's DI tournament will feature a new "Regional" format that spreads the games over two weekends and includes Neighbor Island venues the first weekend.
In first round action Friday:
5 p.m. -- Mililani vs. Radford
7 p.m. -- Maryknoll vs. Kailua
5 p.m. -- King Kekaulike vs. Moanalua
7 p.m. -- Hilo vs. Leilehua
In Regional Quarterfinal action Saturday:
At Blaisdell Arena, Honolulu:
3 p.m. -- King Kekaulike-Moanalua winner vs. Punahou
5 p.m. -- Hilo-Leilehua winner vs. Roosevelt
At Kealakehe High School, Kailua, Kona:
6 p.m. -- Mililani-Radford winner vs. Konawaena
At Lahaina Civic, Lahaina:
6 p.m. -- Maryknoll-Kailua winner vs. Lahainaluna
Saturday's Regional winners will advance to the semifinals Feb. 14 at McKinley; the semifinal winners will play for the championship at 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at Blaisdell Arena.
As a reminder, unlike past years, there will be no consolation bracket games except for the third place game (5 p.m. Feb. 15 at Blaisdell Arena).
Here are each team's regular season records:
1. Konawaena (13-0) 2. Hilo (11-2)
1. Punahou (11-1) 2. Maryknoll (9-3)
1. Lahainaluna (14-0) 2. King Kekaulike (9-5)
1. Roosevelt (13-0) 2. Mililani (12-1) 3. Moanalua (10-3) 4. Kailua (9-5) 5. Leilehua (11-2) 6. Radford (8-6)
And after the MIL was denied a seed for the Division II tournament each of the last two seasons Molokai received the No. 4 seed this time.
