HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL


Mustangs ride early
run to rout of Govs

This time around, there were no surprises for Kalaheo.

The Lady Mustangs galloped their way to a 15-0 lead en route to a surprisingly easy 66-40 win at Farrington last night.

Tavana picks BYU; Pape goes for D-II school

The handwriting was on the wall, but now, Vaafuti Tavana and Kyle Pape are certain about their futures.

Tavana, a 6-foot-8 Kauai senior, will sign a letter of intent to play volleyball for Brigham Young University. Tavana, an all-state selection in two sports, held off any signing until next week. That will permit his father, a BYU graduate, to attend.

"We are all tremendously proud of him, and he is certainly deserving of all the accolades he has been receiving lately," Kauai basketball coach Brandon Fujita said. "As I've stated for the last few years, he is a very special young man."

Tavana led his volleyball and basketball teams to the state tournament the last two years. Tavana and Pape were Star-Bulletin Boys Volleyball All-State selections to the second team.

Pape, meanwhile, will move from Iolani to the Colorado School of Mines. The Interscholastic League of Honolulu boys basketball Player of the Year will sign a letter of intent to play for the school this morning.

The 6-foot-1 guard turned down partial scholarship offers from Santa Clara and Portland to play for the Division II program.

"It didn't matter to me. I'm going there for the engineering program," Pape said.

Taylor Smith and Shaina Siliga finished with 15 points apiece to lead Kalaheo. Kaliko Kepa powered the sixth-ranked Lady Mustangs with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Kalaheo (14-4) improved to 7-1 in the Oahu Interscholastic Association East Division.

Farrington, which lost at Kalaheo 42-41 on March 19, succumbed to Kalaheo's mix of defensive pressure early and never recovered. The Lady Governors (11-6) dropped to 3-5 in the league.

C'ani Kealoha paced Farrington with 11 points on 4-for-12 shooting. The Lady Govs shot 32 percent from the floor (12 of 38) and 56 percent from the free-throw line (10 of 18). Kalaheo shot 45 percent from the field (24 of 53) and 56 percent from the foul line (15 of 27).

"The first game, we played man the whole game and they controlled the tempo," Kalaheo coach Chico Furtado said.

Kalaheo used halfcourt and three-quarter presses to stymie Farrington's quick, but inexperienced guards. "It's all out of our base 2-3 with some wrinkles," Furtado said. "We want to pressure people, but we know our limitations."

Farrington had 11 turnovers by the end of the first quarter and didn't get on the scoreboard until Tatiana Alualu scored on a layup with 5:53 to go in the second quarter.

"The shots were open. We just weren't hitting them," Farrington coach Jenic Tumaneng said. "We had some frustration, but there were still three quarters left."

Kalaheo used eight players in the first quarter as Furtado rotated liberally. He switched defenses often enough to confuse the Lady Govs, who had 17 turnovers by intermission and 27 in the game.

Farrington chipped away and pulled within 19-11 after Kealoha sank a jump shot. "They've got C'ani and the Alatasi twins (Kalani and Kapio)," Furtado said. "They're too good to stay down for long."

Kalaheo, however, closed out the half with a 7-2 run thanks to Siliga. The senior guard drained a 3-pointer from the right wing, and then stole a pass and went downcourt for an easy layup. Kalaheo led 26-13 at halftime.
