OIA girls basketball: Kalaheo at McKinley. If No. 1-ranked Kalaheo wins its 45th straight Eastern Division game against the last East school to beat the Mustangs (in 1997), Kalaheo clinches a No. 1 seed in the OIA championship tournament and at least a tie for the divisional title. ... Moanalua at Farrington, with postseason implications for Menehune. . . . Nanakuli at Leilehua matches 5-1 teams. All games about 7:15.

Kaua'i girls basketball: Waimea at Kapa'a (both 2-1) for spot in league championship game next Tuesday.

Big Island girls basketball: Konawaena (3-0) plays at Honoka'a (3-0) at 7 tonight in the game that probably will decide the Northern Division championship.

OIA baseball: The round-robin season, packed into eight days since the teachers' strike ended, concludes today. In the East, Kaiser (7-1-1) plays Roosevelt (6-3) at Stevenson Intermediate in Makiki. In the wild, wild West, Leilehua (5-3) at 'Aiea (6-2) and Mililani (6-2) at Pearl City (5-3) are crucial matchups as six teams fight for four OIA Tournament berths.


OIA basketball: 'Aiea at Radford for Western Division championship, about 7:15. . . . Kahuku must win at Roosevelt or bid aloha to postseason dreams, also 7:15.

ILH basketball: Before the teachers' strike and the reduction of the state girls basketball field from 12 to eight teams, Iolani looked like a good bet for the ILH's third spot, giving two-time league scoring champion Monica Tokoro a statewide audience to showcase her skills in her senior year. But now the ILH gets only two berths. Punahou has clinched one and Kamehameha — which has lost to no ILH team except Punahou in the past three years — is hungrily eyeing the other. Iolani thinks it can climb the mountain. It begins the climb tonight at 6:30 at McCabe Gym against Sacred Hearts or St. Francis, each of which started this week with state tournament dreams of its own.
