HHSAA Division I girls basketball tournament: Kohala coasts into semifinals by steamrolling Molokai

Kohala coach Adam Harrison credited his team’s heart for carrying it to a first-round 2OT win at the HHSAA Division II girls basketball tournament.

On Thursday in the quarterfinals, the Cowgirls were heartless in one sense: they showed little mercy.

Naai Solomon-Lewis scored 16 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and powered Kohala’s fast start as it cruised past fourth-seeded Molokai 50-30 at Keaau High.

Kohala (9-5), the BIIF runner-up, will be back at Keaau at 5 p.m. Friday to play top-seeded Hawaii Baptist for a spot in the Saturday’s championship match.

If the Cowboys are surprising some around the state, don’t count Harrison among them.
