State basketball: Leilehua overwhelms Waiakea in first round

RICK OGATA photo Waiakea’s Kiai Apele tries to get a basket inside Monday against Leilehua at the Warriors’ gym. The Mules won the state Division I first round game 82-53.

Waiakea was in trouble early against Leilehua, a type of fast-breaking, physical team that’s an extremely rare sight in BIIF basketball.
