Kamehameha (13-3), the Interscholastic League of Honolulu runner-up, made 14 steals and shot 52.1 percent from the field (25 of 48).

Maryknoll (9-9), the ILH's third-place team, outrebounded the Warriors, 32-30, but committed 22 turnovers.

Cheryl Lee, a sophomore forward, led the Spartans with nine points.

Kapaku propels Baldwin past McKinley, 54-45

Junior guard Kami Kapaku scored a game-high 23 points and Isabeau Wai'au added 15 as the Bears fended off a late charge by the Tigers.

McKinley (10-7), the O'ahu Interscholastic Association's fourth-place team, closed to 46-45 on Amber Lee's free throw with 3:24 remaining in the game. But the Bears made eight free throws, including four by Kapaku, to seal the victory.

Baldwin (14-3), the Maui Interscholastic League champion, shot 27 of 48 from the free-throw line. The Tigers shot 8 of 13 from the line.

McKinley coach Jesse Victorino was ejected late in the fourth quarter after picking up his second technical foul for arguing.
