Hey all,

Since print real estate is very limited these days, here are a few of my faves from last night's coverage of the OIA Red Division boys basketball championship between Moanalua and Kalaheo.  What a game!  This is basketball, y'all!  No contracts, no trainers, no sponsors--just kids with the heart and soul to win a game for their team.  Enjoy.
