Keep, Milbrand set pace in Div. II girls’ basketball

LIHU‘E — Taegan Keep, one of two low posts for Kaulupono Basketball, continued to capture high-point honors, finishing with 18 points, Wednesday, in leading Kaulupono to a 31-9 showing over Team Lihu‘e 2.

Leona Sime bucketed six of Team Lihu‘e 2’s game-total nine points in the first of two games re-scheduled from its original Mar. 5 outing at the Kilauea Neighborhood Center in the county’s Division II youth basketball league for students in Grades 4 through 6.

The March 5 games were scrubbed due to inclement weather conditions.

Joy Milbrand, setting the scoring pace for Hanakila during its Monday outing, continued to hold the brand, netting 13 points to lead the team of Hanalei and Kilauea players to a 53-19 showing over Team Lihu‘e 1 in the nightcap.

Milbrand was aided by a strong dozen points from Keani Tolenea, one of the Hanakila posts.

Samantha Coloma pocketed nine points with Tiana Manera aiding the Team Lihu‘e 1 effort on her seven-point contribution, the two girls combining for 16 of the team’s game-total 19 points.

All four teams take the floor, Saturday at the Kalaheo Neighborhood Center when Team Lihu‘e 1 takes on Hanakila starting at noon and Team Lihu‘e 2 faces Kaulupono starting at 1 p.m.

The girls’ matches follow three boys’ games which start at 9 a.m.
