Questions arising after Damien was ousted by University in the ILH Division II second-place game have been answered, at least by one coach. St. Francis, which won the regular season and earned a state-tournament berth, had a unique situation with guard Ranan Mamiya. The questions, which originated from Damien supporters, concerned the sophomore’s eligibility after transferring from another school. Mamiya played at University High on the intermediate team for one scrimmage before transferring to St. Francis. He became eligible to play at his new school one calendar year later — this past December. The sophomore was permitted to play in the regular season, but was forbidden to play in preseason and state-tournament games. He will not participate in St. Francis’ games at the D-II state tourney this week, coach Sol Batoon said of the HHSAA rule. Mamiya, a reserve, had a season-high 20 points against Christian Academy. He averaged 8.9 points per game. The Saints played their final regular-season game on Feb. 5, against University, in their newly completed on-campus gym. Frank looks ahead after missing season The new basketball season was just weeks away when Kalaheo’s Nainoa Frank was dealt an excruciating blow. The 6-foot-6 all-state volleyball player suffered an ACL tear, his second knee injury in three years, while playing in the final football game of the season for the Kalaheo Mustangs. Frank, a shot-blocking machine for the Mustangs basketball team, effectively saw his senior year come to an end. There would be no basketball in the winter. No volleyball in the spring. But the scholarship offer from the University of Hawaii to play volleyball still stands. Frank watched the Mustangs win the OIA Red basketball title game against Moanalua on Saturday. Just imagine, though, if No. 2-ranked Kalaheo still had Frank operating in the middle, giving Shem Sukumaran (6-1), Kalei Zuttermeister (6-3), Derick Morgan (6-0), Josh Ko (6-2) and Kupaa Harrison (6-3) more freedom on the defensive end.
