Iolani finals

More than likely, Kenneth Satterfield will be playing for money in a few years. Next season, the 6-foot-3 guard will be playing for nationally ranked Cincinnati.

Tonight, Satterfield has his 14th-ranked Rice team in the championship game of the Nike-Iolani Prep Classic. He made sure of that, scoring 11 of his 23 points in the final quarter of last night's 79-63 win over Fairfax from Los Angeles.

While most expected Rice (Manhattan, N.Y.) to be in the 8 p.m. title game, few expected Timpview to be on the opposing bench. But the Thunderbirds from Provo, Utah, refused to fold against No. 7 Lower Richland (S.C.), rallying from a 17-point halftime deficit to stun the Diamonds, 71-67, in overtime.

Lower Richland and Fairfax will meet in the third-place game at 6:30 p.m. In the 5 p.m. fifth-place game, Kalaheo takes on Thunderbird while host Iolani is in the seventh-place game against University of San Diego at 3:30.

The four other consolation games began at 9:30 a.m..

bullet Rice 79, Fairfax 63: Coach Maurice Hicks was disappointed his Raiders wouldn't have a shot at Lower Richland "but the best teams are in the championship," he said. "We know we've got a good game ahead of us.

"For us, it's a matter of getting out the kinks. We had played only one game before coming here. But we've got Satterfield who always steps up for the big games."

The Raiders began pulling away from the Lions in the second half, turning a 35-34 halftime lead into 55-48 after the third quarter. Fairfax never got closer than seven the rest of the way with Satterfield scoring 11 of his team's 24 fourth-quarter points.

Stan Thorne finished with 17 points and Joseph Shipp added 16 for the Lions. Andre Barrett added 22 points for Rice and Kyle Cuffe added 15.

bullet Timpview 71, Lower Richland 67 (OT): Height can be measured but not heart. The Thunderbirds may have been lacking in the former but showed plenty of the latter in upsetting the Diamonds.

"The team we played was, in many ways, more talented than we are," Timpview coach Don Chamberlain said. "But our kids play hard and they don't back off. They are not afraid."

Lower Richland put an intimidating five on the court to jump out to a 49-32 lead at halftime. Junior center Rolando Howell had four blocked shots in the first quarter alone.

But Howell and senior guard Edward Scott (20 points) both fouled out in the final 2:44 of regulation. Brock Reichner completed Timpview's comeback with his basket and foul shot to tie it at 63-63 and send the game into overtime.

In the extra period, the Diamonds took a 67-66 lead with 3:17 left but didn't score again. The Thunderbirds pulled it out on five consecutive free throws by Marc Roberts.

Ryan Farnsworth, who hit four of his team's six 3-pointers, led Timpview with 25 points.

Ivan Howell led the Lower Richland scoring with 23 points.

bullet Kalaheo 37, Iolani 30: In a rematch of last season's state championship game, the Mustangs got 19 points from Julien Sensley to avenge the loss to the host Raiders.

Sensley scored Kalaheo's first 15 points and "sometimes, that's just what happens with him," said teammate Ryan Hogue. "Even though it's a different team and a different season, it's always nice to beat a team that beat you in an important game."

Iolani rallied late in the fourth, closing to 34-30, but could never catch the Mustangs. Cord Anderson led the Raiders with 14.

bullet Thunderbird 51, University 50: Jeff Kirkeby sank the winning free throw with three seconds remaining as the Chiefs rallied against the Dons.

Kirkeby and Arthur Daniels each had 18 points for Thunderbird. Chris Walton, whose two free throws tied the game at 50-50 with 1:46 to go, finished with 30 for University.

bullet Punahou 52, Roosevelt 31: The Buffanblu jumped out to a 22-7 lead after the first eight minutes and were never headed. Noah Wee led Punahou with 11 points while Chad Kapanui and Douglas Williams each scored six for the Rough Riders.

bullet Scavolini 64, St. Louis 48: The Italian team outscored the Crusaders, 24-11, in the third quarter to pull away. Simone Flamini led Scavolini with 14 while St. Louis got a game-high 14 points from Matt Vivas.

bullet Waimea 57, Okinawa 49: Tony Bron scored 17 points and the Menehunes used a 24-8 run in the fourth quarter to rally past the Select. Tsuyoshi Kuniyoshi topped Okinawa in scoring with 17.

bullet Kaimuki 56, Waipahu 43: David Tautofi scored 12 points and Marvin Moore added 11 as the Bulldogs eliminated the Marauders. Vernon Tailele led Waipahu with 10.
