The Bears of Baldwin High return to the `Iolani Classic for their fifth appearance, 14 years after their last appearance in 2007. Led by Head Coach Cody Tesoro, the Bears were MIL League Champions in 2019-20. Baldwin enters the 2021-22 season with a team with imposing size. Three returning players stand 6’6 or taller, including senior forward Hudson Yarbrough (6’7) and senior wing Quintan Akaka (6’7). Junior wing Avery Pauole (6’6) is also able to hurt teams inside and outside. Shifty junior guard Ryal Macloves Burton will be counted on as a primary ball handler and sophomore James Medeiros will be counted on to add scoring and guard multiple positions. Baldwin expects to compete for its second straight league championship and make a run for a state title.
