POSTED: Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Kamehameha graduate Pi'i Minns, the Star-Bulletin boys basketball Player of the Year, will continue his career at Chaminade.

Minns, a 6-foot-3 guard, led Kamehameha to the state championship last season. He averaged 12 points, four rebounds and three assists for the Warriors.

Minns said he's been working out with former 'Iolani and Washington State standout Derrick Low and the staff at Tactical Strength to prepare for the jump to college ball.

“;Training with (Low) and learning from him will help me in trying to compete when I get to Chaminade,”; Minns said.

Minns said Chaminade's academic program and annual participation in the EA Sports Maui Invitational were among the selling points in his decision.

He also considered walking on at Hawaii and Idaho to play either basketball or football.
