HD League set to begin on July 2

A summer league will continue for top-level basketball players in Hawai’i, but it will have a different name this year.

The Hawai’i Development League is scheduled to run from July 2-19. The regular-season games will be played at St. Francis School and Manoa District Park. The championship game on July 19 will be played at Maryknoll School.

Similar to the Hawaii College Basketball Summer League of recent years (also known as the NCAA Summer League in prior years), the HD League will feature six teams with current, former and future players from local colleges and high schools. The participation status of the current University of Hawai’i basketball players has yet to be announced.

Each team will play five regular-season games, followed by a single-elimination playoff tournament.

Former ‘Iolani and Washington State standout Derrick Low is a Co-Founder/Director of the HD League. His former ‘Iolani teammate, Kyle Pape, is the other Co-Founder/Director.

A women’s league is also on schedule, with games set to begin on June 26 at Manoa District Park.
