[ HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS ]

Kaimuki picks up
big win at Roosevelt

Twenty-one turnovers plus three missed free throws in the final minute is not a good formula for success.

Still, Kaimuki found a way to rally past Roosevelt 48-46 last night at the Rough Riders' gym.

Jordan Wong scored 16 points, including three treys, and Jon Torres added 11 to lead Kaimuki. The Bulldogs improved to 4-0 in Oahu Interscholastic Association East play (10-3 overall).

Jarett Shiu came off the bench to score five crucial points, including a 3-pointer, to give the Bulldogs the lead for good with just under 3 minutes left.

"Our juniors really came through," Kaimuki first-year head coach Kelly Grant said.

A win over the tough Rough Riders was a telling sign of improvement for the Bulldogs, who had played teams with a combined record of 0-9 coming into this week's slate.

Grant was spent at the end of a game that featured a multitude of personal fouls and loose-ball pileups and one technical.

"I'm gonna tell them they're 4-0," said Grant, a former Maryknoll standout who went on to play at Hawaii Pacific under Tony Sellitto. "The East is tough."

Roosevelt dropped to 2-2 in league play (10-6 overall). La'akea Moikeha scored 12 points, Kerstan Ho 11 and Danton Balbas 10 for the Rough Riders.

"Coach (John Chung) said we didn't play hard through the whole game. We made some stupid mistakes," Ho said. "We just gotta take it one game at a time against Castle and whoever we got next."

Kaimuki was prepared for a slightly different Roosevelt lineup.

"We didn't know Balbas and Moikeha were coming back," Grant said. "We had to scratch the game plan."

The Bulldogs jumped to a 7-0 lead after hitting their first three shots, but Roosevelt's man defense eventually became stifling. The Rough Riders went ahead, 15-14, on a 3-point shot by Balbas.

Shortly after using their full-court press, however, Chung called it off.

"I love coaching against John," Grant said. "It's a chess match."

Kaimuki stayed in its matchup zone, but Roosevelt gained momentum and took a 19-17 lead into halftime.

Keo Keola had six points to lead Roosevelt in the opening half. The Rough Riders mixed man and 2-3 zone defenses to maintain a small lead through the third quarter.

Kaimuki pulled within one, but Ho scored the final three points of the third as Roosevelt took a 31-27 lead into the fourth.

Moikeha's two free throws extended his team's lead to 35-29 with 7:26 left to play, but the Rough Riders became their own enemy. While Roosevelt settled for perimeter shots, Kaimuki chipped away.

Shawn Dela Cazada hustled for a putback, and Kekoa Onaga drove for a tough layup that tied the game at 35 with 4:47 to go.

Roosevelt took a three-point lead thanks to a technical foul against Kaimuki, only to have the Bulldogs rally. Shiu came off the bench to hit a jumper from the foul line, then drained a 3-pointer from the right wing to give Kaimuki a 43-41 lead with 2:57 left.

Roosevelt missed its next three shots, and Kaimuki got a bucket on the low post by Torres to take a 45-41 lead with 2:14 to go. The Rough Riders pulled to within 47-45 after reserve guard Kevin Fujii hit a 3-pointer with 7 seconds to go.

Wong made one of his two free-throw tries with 5.5 seconds left for a 48-45 lead. With 2.5 seconds left, Torres fouled Ho at midcourt. Ho made his first free-throw attempt and deliberately missed the second. Dela Cazada rebounded for Kaimuki and time expired.
