December 11, 2010 — 11 years ago, I attended my first Iolani Classic. The championship game that year featured No. 1 Oak Hill (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) vs. No. 2 Dominguez (Compton, Calif.). Oak Hill won in a 54-50 thriller, and Kentucky-bound Cliff Hawkins was named the Most Valuable Player. In addition, I got to interview Tyson Chandler.
Oak Hill head coach Steve Smith said in a phone interview yesterday, “I remember that game. I remember that game well. It was a really good game – close and exciting.”
Over a decade later, not much has changed. Oak Hill is once again No. 1 in both the USA Today and ESPN RISE rankings with an 11-0 record. They have one game left vs. Sumter on Saturday before they leave for Hawaii.
Smith, who has his choice of holiday tournaments, has been bringing the Warriors to Honolulu since 1988 (though not every year).
“The Hawaii tournament has top-notch competition. Semifinals, finals, you can’t find a better game on your schedule all season long. Obviously, being in Honolulu, Hawaii, that’s an attraction. Most of our kids have never been there. I like taking our guys to different places, places they’ve never gone to,” he said.

Throughout the 2010-2011 season, oakhillhoops.com features personal stories from our players.
We’ve now been up on “The Hill” for about three months. It doesn’t seem like I’ve been gone from St. Louis that long at all. My senior year is going really well. I just didn’t realize it would all come this fast. In just three short months, being in this new environment has helped me a lot both on and off the court. I feel like I’m getting ready for my start in the real world…
Four Oak Hill seniors have signed National Letters of Intent this week. Congratulations, guys!
